Madrid are understood to be interested in Pogba as well but nothing has materialised as of yet.

Since re-joining the club from Juventus in 2016 in a then-world record deal worth around £93 million (€110 million), he has won the League Cup and UEFA Europa League, as well as the World Cup with France.

"After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well ..." The Frenchman led United for both goals and assists in the Premier League last season and the addition of an elite creator such as Eriksen would help compensate for his potential departure.

Linked with several of the Premier League's leading sides following an impressive first season at Leicester, England U21 worldwide Maddison would help fill the creative void left by Pogba's departure.

Having said time and again that he wants the 2018 World Cup victor to be the focal point of his masterplan for United, Solskjaer's credibility would take a monumental hit if Pogba is sold from under him.

"I am thinking of this: to have a new challenge somewhere else".

Perhaps more than that, Solskjaer potentially becomes manager in name only if his constant crowing about his plans for Pogba falls on deaf ears in the boardroom.

This is another move that signals Seattle is in a full teardown and could be an interesting seller to watch in the coming weeks. Per The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, the Mariners and Yankees will split the remaining $15 million owed to Encarnacion.

I have been three years in Manchester and have been doing great - some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody, like everywhere else.

"Like you said, there is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking as well", he told reporters in Tokyo.

The chance to work with fellow Frenchman Zinedine Zidane at Real could be the deal clincher for the 26-year-old Pogba.

"Knowing he is an important player who is young, and knowing that Zidane is continually asking for him, they can wait in the office for a lot of money in a suitcase".

Raiola said of the sanctions in May: "I guess the FIGC has not forgiven me for when I criticised them for their role in the disastrous state of Italian football, as well as their role around the latest episode of the racism problem".

"He's a midfielder who knows how to defend and how to attack, but he is not my player, he is at Manchester. So when his experience at Manchester ends, why not come here to Madrid?".
