Manchester United reveal the duo are set to leave the club amid transfer interest from Newcastle United and West Ham


Both players, who have been linked with a move to Newcastle United, will leave on free transfers this summer.

Pogba joined Manchester United from Juventus for a club record in 2016, but his second stint at the club fell short of high expectations following his move from Turin.

Bookmakers believe a return to Juventus is most likely for the Frenchman, but a move to Newcastle has also been thrown into the mix with odds as short as 16/1 for him to move to Tyneside.

A move for Pogba would be highly unlikely but it’s not a new rumor circulating. In October, their former player Chris Waddle told The Sun that the Magpies could consider the midfielder this summer:

“Paul Pogba is no longer under contract, is he?” Waddle said shortly after the club was taken over by the Saudis in October.

“Now people might talk about Newcastle – but money talks. If they sell the dream of what we’re going to win and achieve, it’s possible. Waddle said.

A more realistic signing for Newcastle could be Jesse Lingard, after all they had a deadline day approach for him pushed back by Manchester United in January, although the player himself would have been keen on the move.

However, it was West Ham who were chosen to sign Lingard after enjoying a superb loan spell at the London Stadium in 2021.

Newcastle United will no doubt be active in the transfer market this summer as rumors of potential arrivals grow.
