Paul Pogba's contract renewal is top of Manchester United's to-do list this summer. The Premier Leauge club fear that when his contract expires next year, he will leave on a free, according to the British newspaper The Mirror.

Pogba deal worth €100 million

The Red Devils want to convince the Frenchman to stay in a deal worth €100 million. The prospect of the 28-year-old leaving Old Trafford for a second time after coming to the end of his contract is something United don't want to let happen. It would also negatively influence the other transfers the club are currently negotiating, with Jadon Sancho on the agenda, for whom Borussia Dortmund could ask €95 million for.

The Old Trafford club are once again facing a tough nut to crack, Mino Raiola, the player's agent. United want to extend the Frenchman's contract again, having already extended it by a further 12 months on his current deal.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has handled Pogba carefully and has refused to get involved in any exchange of views with his agent, Raiola.
