Paul Pogba admits playing for Manchester United “is not easy”, but he is keeping his sights set on “the big stuff” after enduring more semi-final heartache at the hands of rivals Manchester City.

Manchester United must ‘sell Paul Pogba now’ or they will lose him for free, according to the midfielder’s brother Mathias, The Sun reports.

Pogba is in scintillating form and has helped his side to second in the Premier League table.

But reports linking him with the Old Trafford exit door refuse to go away.

In December, Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola revealed the 27-year-old wants to leave Old Trafford for pastures new.

And he later admitted the World Cup winner was more likely to leave in the summer as it’s hard to do ‘top deals’ in January.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer always praises Pogba’s attitude when asked about his future and usually does well to not get drawn into a back-and-forth.

But Pogba’s older brother Mathias, 30 – who plays for Spanish side Racing Murcia – appeared on Spanish TV show El Chiringuito on Tuesday morning and stirred the pot again.


He said: “He has a year left on his contract. I don’t know [if he will stay until then]. I can’t help you right now.

“The only thing I can say is if United want money, they have to sell him now. That’s the only thing I can say. If not, he’ll go for free.

“I haven’t heard anything about him renewing his contract.”

Raiola also labelled Man Utd as ‘greedy’ in December.

But despite the constant talk of an exit, United ace Pogba recently said: “I am on contract, I am here, I am enjoying myself.

“Everybody knows that I have one year left, I’m going to speak with the club and see what’s going on.

“For now, my objective, my goal is to win something. That’s all I’m thinking about is to win.”
