Transfer News: Manchester United to Sell Paul Pogba, Tottenham Willing to Let Star Leave

Confirmation of Manchester City’s Premier League title on Sunday (April 15) may have been inevitable, but it has caused rivals to react. 

Second-place Manchester United, whose defeat to basement club West Brom handed City the title, appear to be preparing for drastic change this summer.

Elsewhere, fourth-place Tottenham are looking to make a long-term investment, by cashing in on one of their key players to bring in future talent. 

Here, Newsweek takes a look at all the news, rumors and gossip swirling around the Premier League as the 2017-18 season heads into the final straight.

According to the Daily Mail, Jose Mourinho is willing to let Paul Pogba leave Manchester United just two years after returning for £89 million from Juventus. The 25-year-old midfielder appears to have fallen out with Mourinho and the Portuguese manager has grown frustrated. 

Pogba isn't the only one set to leave Old Trafford. According to the Mail, Anthony Martial, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian are also heading toward the Manchester United exit this summer. The Daily Express say Juventus have shown interest in taking Darmian. 

In North London, Tottenham are ready to cash-in on Belgian midfielder Mousa Dembele. The 30-year-old has been a key figure in Mauricio Pochettino's team but, according to the Daily Mirror, Spurs have an idea of two players they want to sign after selling Dembele. 

Tottenham are also one of four teams in the race to sign one of England's rising stars. Leicester City's Harry Maguire has drawn interest from across the Premier League and, according to the Daily Star, Spurs are joined by Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal in wanting to sign the 25-year-old. 

Another English youngster impressing in the Premier League is Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The 22-year-old midfielder is on loan at Crystal Palace from Chelsea and is yet to decide whether he wants to return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, according to The Independent
