Paul Pogba is entering the final 12 months of his contract this summer, leaving Manchester United with what could be considered as their biggest dilemma of the summer. Do the Reds sell Pogba for a reduced fee or go all-out on a new contract offer, preventing the worst-case scenario of the Frenchman leaving for free next summer.
