Paul Pogba is still very much a Manchester United player ahead of the European transfer deadline on Monday, but he is out of the picture when it comes to the club’s 2020 calendar.
The 26-year-old France international and World Cup winner has been one of the biggest names in the Old Trafford squad since his return to the club, from Juventus three years ago in a deal worth £90million.
However, after constant speculation surrounding his future at the club throughout the course of last season, which has lingered on over the summer, it seems that members of the merchandising department have lost patience.
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has consistently said that Pogba will not be leaving this summer, despite reports claiming that Real Madrid chief Zinedine Zidane was keen to take his compatriot to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Following Monday’s closure of the transfer window closes across Europe, Pogba is consigned to playing for United at least until January.
But fans that purchase the Red Devils’ calendar ahead of 2020 will not see his face on their walls in any of the following 12 months.
While Solskjaer is positive about keeping the player, clearly others at the club do not share his confidence. As a result it is Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay and Anthony Martial who are in the frame for the opening four months of the year.
