Key Summary:

1. Paul Pogba is open to moving to Man United's Premier League rivals, according to reports.

2. The Frenchman is out of contract at the end of the season and has so far refused to sign an extension.

3. Pogba has been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea in the past.

Paul Pogba has been linked with a move to Manchester United's Premier League rivals as he nears the end of his contract at Old Trafford.

The midfielder has refused to comment on his future thus far, but has been linked with a move back to Juventus. Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are also interested in signing the World Cup winner.

But according to recent reports, Pogba might be open to moving to one of United's Premier League rivals.

The Telegraph have claimed that the Frenchman will wait until the end of the season to decide on his future, but will keep his options open, including those from the league.

Manchester City and Chelsea have both previously been linked with an interest in signing the 28-year-old. The Blues even tried to sign Pogba when Jose Mourinho was at the club in 2015, but the player's agent, Mino Raiola, revealed it "wasn't the right time" for Pogba to move.

Raiola reportedly offered City the chance to sign Pogba in 2018, but Pep Guardiola opted against signing him.

For now though, Pogba is focused on playing for United and earned praise from interim boss Ralf Rangnick for his role in the 2-0 win over Brighton.

"It was important to keep control and possession of the ball and that's why I decided to bring on Paul," said Rangnick.

"Since he was out with a long-term injury it was good to rest him in the first-half and to have him available for the last 20 minutes of the game."
