Manchester United have reportedly drawn out a list of possible Paul Pogba’s replacements as the midfield man appears to be on a move this summer.
The Red Devils are desperate to keep him despite Real Madrid interest and United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is adamant that he will reject any bid for Pogba, who has two years left to run on his current contract.
However the French superstar is keen to make the move to Spain and has previously made clear his desire to play for Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.
Evening Standard have claimed that while United are hopeful that Pogba will still be available next season, they are beginning to look at replacements.
Top of the list of players for Pogba’s replacements is Christian Eriksen, who last week revealed his intention to leave Tottenham.
Speaking with Danish magazine Ekstra Bladet, Eriksen revealed that while he could be persuaded to stay in north London if offered a new contract, a new challenge is his preferred option.
The 27-year-old Denmark midfielder has only one year left on his current deal and is seeking a resolution to his future with the Champions League runners-up this summer.
United also has Youri Tielemans on their list of targets after the Belgian enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Leicester City last season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a close eye on the Monaco midfielder’s performances in the English top-flight and was impressed with his impact despite being willing to build his team around Pogba
