Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is prepared to let Paul Pogba join Real Madrid this summer in a £120million move.

The Frenchman was seen as key to Solskjaer’s rebuilding project at Old Trafford when he took over the reins last December and the Norwegian was confident he could convince Pogba to stay.

Pogba was keen on joining Barcelona last summer and, despite a mid-season upturn in performances, the midfielder remains keen on leaving the club and is said to have informed Solskjaer of his desire to join Real Madrid.

United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward believes losing Pogba to Real Madrid would be a major blow to United’s image and reputation across the world.

However, Solskjaer feels he can’t afford to carry passengers as he looks to rebuild the club and is willing to let Pogba move to the Bernabeu, report the Sun.

The Norwegian coach knows the pressure will be on during his first full season in charge and he wants players that he can rely on and that are fully focused on his project.

Solskjaer will not push Pogba out of the door at Old Trafford and knows Woodward will do everything within his power to keep the midfielder at the club.

Should Pogba see his path blocked, he may have to hand in a transfer request in an attempt to force through a move to Spain.

Solskjaer will sign as many as six players this summer and is already targeting a midfielder to replace the Paris Saint-Germain-bound Ander Herrera.

The 46-year-old wants his signings completed in time for pre-season and he’s targeting West Ham’s Declan Rice, Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Swansea’s Daniel James.
