Pogba, De Gea and Lukaku to consider future

Paul Pogba, David De Gea and Romelu Lukaku will all consider their future with Manchester United, should the club fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League, according to The Guardian.

De Gea has long been linked with Real Madrid, and recently Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have been credited with interest too. His contract expires this summer and as he has been reluctant to sign a new one, United are forced to activate a 12-month option to extend it the current one. But should they fail to qualify for the Champions League, the goalkeeper’s decision not to renew is unlikely to change and they may choose to part ways with him now, rather than lose him for free next year.

Like De Gea, Pogba has been linked with Real recently, and he was keen to leave last summer when United received an offer from Barcelona. He has been criticized by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who also said that some of the current crop of players won’t be a part of the Manchester United future.

Lukaku has lost his place under the Norwegian, and that, along with the potential lack of Champions League football, may drive him away from Old Trafford this summer.
