Manchester United are ready to offload Paul Pogba after just two seasons back at Old Trafford according to reports in The Independent.

The French midfielder has failed to live up to his £89m price tag following his return to the club he left for Juventus.

Pogba has been criticised by fans and pundits for his lacklustre performances in the Red Devils midfield and has been dropped frequently by manager Jose Mourinho.

While Pogba’s merchandising and promotional power is evident, he has failed to replicate his success in Italy – where his performances saw him named in the FIFA World XI.

According to reports, United are weighing up a swap deal with French heavyweights – Paris St Germain.

PSG are long-term admirers of Pogba and was interested in his services before he completed the move back to Manchester.

United would hope to secure the signature of Italian midfielder, Marco Verratti, with Pogba heading the other way to his native France.

Both players are represented by super-agent, Mino Raiola, meaning brokering a deal might not prove as difficult as expected.

Pogba is yet to find a suitable role in the United midfield with Mourinho frequently using youngster Scott McTominay in his place.

It is believed he would prefer to use the Italian international in his midfield than Pogba, while other reports suggest United could demand that Real Madrid include the services of Toni Kroos should they target David De Gea again in the summer transfer window.

United were knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday night by Sevilla but remain in second place behind rivals Manchester City in the Premier League.

Should the Citizens defeat Everton, they will become champions if they manage to defeat Manchester United in their following fixture.

I wonder what the bookies make of this at
