There is anxiety at Premier League club Manchester United as they risk losing Frenchman Paul Pogba for nothing next summer.

However, the Glazers’ blunt response when Wayne Rooney wanted to leave the club during the spell of manager David Moyes suggest they will have a firm stance

Pogba’s future at United remains unresolved as negotiations around his contract remains in deadlock and an extension is yet to be agreed.

French side Paris Saint-Germain are still linked with a move for the midfielder and they remain in strong contention to land him.

This would not be the first time United are having issues with a major player as regards exit, and history suggests the Glazer family will take a strong stance.

Mirror reports that back in 2013, Wayne Rooney was desperate to leave the Old Trafford outfit when David Moyes arrived.

The manager disclosed that the Glazers made their policy clear - that they decide when players leave Manchester United.

Moyes told beinSports via All Football:

"I have to say I learnt a lesson a little bit from the owners of Manchester United at that time.
"I think Wayne eventually put a transfer request in, and the owners of Manchester United turned around and said, 'You don't think we listen to transfer requests?
"We've had far better players, many better players put in transfer requests. We tell them when we want them to leave Manchester United’.”

Grealish on the verge of joining Man City

Manchester City are set to complete the signing of Aston Villa attacking midfielder, Jack Grealish, with reports claiming the 25-year-old will sign on Wednesday, August 4.

Grealish will complete a £100 million mega move to Manchester City.

Daily Mail are also reporting that the staggering amount will eclipse the £89 million Manchester United splashed to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.

Six players to leave Liverpool earlier reported that Liverpool have reportedly lined up six players for sale before the end of this summer despite their silent activities in the transfer window so far.

The Reds who struggled to finish fourth on the Premier League log last season have only signed Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig for £35 million to add depth to his backline.

Although they are said to be interested in new signings like Manuel Locatelli, Saul Niguez, and Florian Neuhaus, nothing concrete has however been done to back up their seriousness.
