Manchester United have reportedly identified three potential replacements for Paul Pogba should the Frenchman depart in the summer window.

The former Juventus star’s contract at Old Trafford is set to expire in 2022, though the Red Devils are thought to be keen on extending his stay in Manchester.

Man Utd hope to tie Pogba down to a new long-term deal, according to Simon Mullock in the Irish Mirror, though it seems they’re also keeping potential replacements in mind as well.

Their list of targets in that area of the pitch includes West Ham’s Declan Rice, Leicester’s Wilfred Ndidi and Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez.

Given that all three names outlined both perform more defensively-minded duties for their current clubs, it’s difficult to imagine any being considered as genuine replacements for the 28-year-old.

Real Madrid and a return to Juventus are considered as potential options for the World Cup-winner, however, considering the financial constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s unlikely that the clubs in question will be prepared to fork up the £80m fee reportedly desired.
