Paul Pogba transfer saga Q&A

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba could soon leave for the second time in only seven years.

The Frenchman, who recently admitted his Old Trafford career could be coming to an end, is a summer target for both Real Madrid and Juventus.

Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, has spoken for the first time this summer about trying to get his man out of Old Trafford while the player himself is on a break in New York.

Here Sportsmail's MIKE KEEGAN provides the inside track on the transfer story that is dominating the summer and takes a look at who Untied might turn to as a replacement.  

The story so far

You can imagine the scene. A sunny Sunday afternoon at Ed Woodward's Cheshire pile. It's the off-season, so there is no game to dissect or prepare for. A rare chance for relaxation. Suddenly, the mobile rings. Ed answers. The serenity is broken by the sound of United's executive vice chairman's immediately perplexed voice. 'He said WHAT?'

Paul Pogba came through United's academy before jettisoning the club for Juventus in 2012 after Sir Alex Ferguson's now famous row with his agent, Mino Raiola. United got around £1.5million at the time before paying around 60 times that figure to bring him back in 2016. 

The 26-year-old has shown the desired impact in flashes as United's post-Fergie malaise has continued. He currently has two years left on his contract with an option held by the club to extend for another year.
