Following a contract stalemate, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is close to leaving the club for free at the end of the season.

Not only is the French playmaker soon-to-be out of contract, but he is also currently ruled out following an injury he picked up while away on international duty last year.

Should Pogba not return until around March, he will only have approximately two months of the season left before his deal expires and that is assuming manager Ralf Rangnick opts to immediately recall him to his starting lineup.

If Pogba’s comeback were to suffer another setback, it is possible the United-faithful may never see him in action for the side again.
