Last summer, United spent all summer chasing England winger Jadon Sancho, but executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward didn’t stump up the cash to meet Borussia Dortmund’s £108million valuation.
It had been anticipated that the Red Devils could renew their pursuit ahead of next season – although a striker and a centre-half appear to be the top priorities.
However, if Pogba keeps producing those kinds of performances on the left, Rashford and Greenwood may be left to battle it out for the right flank next season, while Amad is also waiting in the wings.

Of course, much will depend on whether Pogba stays at United this summer, with the midfielder continuing to be linked with an Old Trafford exit.
There is also, of course, the argument that signing Sancho would enhance United’s attack still further – giving Solskjaer a range of options in attack.
But if Pogba can be persuaded to stay, football director Murtough could concentrate United’s transfer kitty on signing a striker such as Erling Haaland or Harry Kane – as well as the top-class defensive partner for Harry Maguire that the club so desperately need.
