Paul Pogba has been named in Manchester United’s squad for their pre-season tour despite the midfielder eyeing a move away from Old Trafford.
The France international has spoken of his desire to depart the Red Devils this summer while his agent Mino Raiola has revealed they are in the process of securing his departure.
But Pogba will now travel to Australia, China and Singapore with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad when they fly out of England on Sunday afternoon.
Reports had suggested that Pogba may go AWOL to avoid having to catch the flight and further increase his chances of being allowed to leave.
But United’s stance has always been that he will retain their player heading into the 2019-20 campaign, despite the 26-year-old emerging as a top target for Real Madrid and former club Juventus.
Pogba is joined in the squad by Romelu Lukaku, who himself has been at the centre of transfer rumours since the end of last season.
