Paul Pogba will be due a massive payoff should Manchester United sell him this summer.

The Mirror says United could be faced with handing Pogba a £15million pay-off if they sell the Frenchman this summer.

Pogba, 28, would be due to receive the final 12 months of his £290,000-a-week wages if the Reds attempt to cash in on the midfielder in a bid to prevent him becoming a free agent next year.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still hasn't given up hope of persuading the club's record signing to sign a new deal despite claims he has already rejected the chance to become the Premier League's £400,000-a-week highest earner.

But the United manager also accepts that it would be financial madness to allow a player to leave the club for free for a second time.

And he would also prefer Pogba's future to be settled quickly so that he can recruit a top-class replacement.

Paris St Germain would like to take Pogba back to France to bolster their hopes of becoming European champions for the first time.

United want £60million for a player who cost them £89million when he returned from Juventus four years ago.
