Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has reportedly been offered to Premier League rivals Liverpool by his agent Mino Raiola.
We covered reports earlier that the World Cup winner is in the final year of his contract with the Red Devils and his agent has spoken to the representatives of the Merseyside club regarding a potential transfer.
The 28 year old has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent weeks and Paris Saint-Germain have been mentioned as a potential destination as well.
Although Pogba is a world class player on his day, a move to Liverpool seems highly unlikely given the rivalry between the two clubs. There has not been a direct transfer between the two clubs since 1964.
Furthermore, the Frenchman is likely to demand massive wages and the Reds will simply not be able to afford him.
Pogba will be free to open talks with other clubs when the transfer window reopens in January.
The last thing Manchester United would want is to sell their best midfielder to the direct rivals and the only way the Frenchman is heading to Anfield is if his contract is allowed to expire next summer.
Liverpool could certainly use midfield reinforcements this summer after the departure of Gini Wijnaldum and they have been linked with the likes of Saul Niguez in recent weeks.
Some of the Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to share their reactions to the links with Paul Pogba and here is what they had to say.
Mbappe to Liverpool is more realistic than Pogba to Liverpool, United to Liverpool with Mino involved… behave!

As strange as it sounds if the opportunity would arise I would take him in a heart beat. He would improve our midfield massively
That would be scary actually and with VVD IK at the back woow
NOT HAPPENING anyways

I wouldn’t take him on a free to be honest. Causes more drama than he’s worth, especially when he isn’t playing for France.

Wouldn't be surprised if it's true – he offered Pogba to Man City in January 2018.

Never gonna happen but deep down we will all take him in the blink of an eye. Pogba Fabinho Thiago

I’m not saying I want Pogba because I don’t. But having players like Henderson and Fabinho behind him is actually what he’s needed at United. Has it in the National team in Kante/Sissoko/Tolisso etc

Would never happen of course but it's mad how many think he would be good in a klopp team.
Good player but terrible fit for lfc.
