Manchester United may have started preparing for life after Paul Pogba, this follows from reports that they have identified Saul Niguez as potential replacement for the aforementioned want-away midfielder.
Pogba fueled speculations over his future when he claimed he could be set for a new experience and he has been linked with a move away from Man United ever since.
Juventus are reported to be weighing on a deal for him but Real Madrid are believed to be frontrunners in his chase.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on rebuilding a squad for Man United around talented young players and he does not want the French midfielder to leave. But do you keep an unhappy player?
Consequently, the Red Devils have been lurking around Wanda Metropolitano for Niguez, who has been dubbed as potential replacement for Pogba, per Spanish outlet AS, cited by Sport Witness .
Niguez has been a mainstay in the midfield of Los Roji Blancos and they do not want to sell him. He has a €150million release clause but United have already contacted his representative over a potential deal.
Man United have signed two players in this transfer window but they are keen on signing Bruno Fernandes, a creative midfielder, as their third summer signing.
But if Pogba leaves, they will be left with a dearth of midfielders, hence, they must sign a direct replacement for him.
The French star is not the only United player linked with exiting the club, Lukaku is also on the exit train.
