Pogba’s contract expires next summer, although it can be extended for another year by the club, which is expected to be done even if they wish to sell the Frenchman.
The World Cup winner has already admitted that he ‘dreams’ of playing for Real Madrid and a move to the Spanish capital looks inevitable at some stage. United will likely extend his deal in order to secure a transfer fee next summer.
If and when Pogba departs, United are looking at teenage sensation Camavinga to be his replacement in midfield.
The 17-year-old is one of the hottest properties in world football, having made 36 appearances for Rennes last season after becoming the club’s youngest ever debutant at 16-years-old.
The youngster was born in Angola but France, where he moved at the age of two, have secured his international future as he has already appeared twice for the world champions and scored once.
Reports emerged earlier in the year that Camavinga would fancy a move to Real Madrid over any other, but Manchester United are still very competitive in the race.
Spanish publication AS, via Sport Witness, report that United have put ‘a mechanism in place’ to secure Camavinga’s signature if Pogba does depart.
Pogba currently earns around £15m-a-year at Old Trafford and removing his enormous salary, along with brining in a decent transfer fee, would free up United to make a big move for the teenager.
If Real Madrid do take on Pogba, they will also be in a trickier position to move for Camavinga themselves.
