Paul Pogba has not been included in any Manchester United negotiations with Juventus for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Red Devils are reportedly about to pull off a massive coup by taking back their former No.7 after Manchester City pulled out.
The Glazers are now ‘confident’ of signing the Portuguese star, arranging a medical in Lisbon for the man who scored 118 goals to win three Premier League titles and a Champions League in his first stint at Old Trafford.
And transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has reported that Ronaldo’s arrival will not affect the immediate future of the club’s current superstar.
Pogba has been linked with a move away from United, with Real Madrid circling for the end of his contract next summer as a new deal has not been negotiated.
With the Frenchman having spent four years at Juventus between spells at his current club, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have considered a swap in order to secure Ronaldo.
But Romano says the midfielder is ‘currently not involved in any talks’ to sign the 36-year-old.
Ronaldo would be following the same path as Pogba, having played at Real for nine years between his time at United and the Italian side.
Do you think Paul Pogba should sign a new contract at Manchester United? Let us know in the comments section.
He has already left the club, having been seen driving out of the Old Lady’s training base before the session started and filmed getting into a jet for Lisbon.
It has since been reported that the Glazers have sanctioned a two-year contract as the medical is expected to take place in Portugal.
While Solskjaer did little to calm speculation, saying in his press conference ahead of United’s Premier League clash with Wolves: "Cristiano has been a legend of this club, he is a legend of this club, he's the greatest player of all time, if you ask me.
"I was fortunate enough to play with him, I coached him (in 2008) when I got my job. He almost retired me in that Wolverhampton game (in 2003) when I got injured because he kept switching sides!
"Such a tremendous human being, as well. Let's see what happens with Cristiano. Everyone who's played with him has a soft spot for him."
