The career of Paul Pogba at Manchester United is nearing an end, according to his agent. 

Mino Raiola has told Tuttosport that the France international midfielder is set for a move away from Old Trafford.

Pogba is contracted to United until the summer of 2022, and has failed to consistently deliver to a level associated with a €105million transfer fee.

The 27-year old has started just five of United's Premier League games this season, and just once in the Champions League.

He scored a spectacular equaliser in Saturday's 3-1 win away to West Ham.

Speaking to MUTV, Pogba outlined the effect his August COVID-19 diagnosis took upon the start to his season.

"It’s strange, it’s hard to explain because you wouldn’t understand. Even in training, I would say to the fitness coach that I feel strange.

"It’s not me. I get tired very fast and I’m out of breath really fast.

"The first game of the season, I couldn’t run. I was trying. I spoke with the manager, “I will start the game and let’s see,” but I was very out of breath and it took me a long time to get me back to my fitness and to get back physically good."

Pogba's expected to feature in Tuesday night's game away to RB Leipzig, one from which United need a point to progress to the Champions League last-16.

"For sure, we have two big games coming up,” said Pogba. “

We have Champions League [against Leipzig] and we have City. We know that those are two very important games, decisive games.

“We have to carry on this mentality of winning, always. That’s what the club is about and we want to carry on this and what we did in the second half.”
