'Now or never' reads the front page of Thursday's edition of Diario AS (via Sport Witness) with a huge photo of Paul Pogba on it.
The La Liga giants have been chasing the Frenchman for years but all in vain, so far at least.
Pogba enters the final year of his contract in June with United having an option to extend his stay at Old Trafford by another 12 months. Should the Red Devils trigger the option it would only anger the 27-year-old.
"It would only serve to upset the footballer and force him out, or to leave a year later hopelessly," a source close to the player told AS.
Hence, United need to agree a new deal with Pogba until June to avoid losing him on a cut-price in the summer.
The World Cup winner is currently valued at €100m but his price could drop 'depending on how the Coronavirus crisis affects football finances', as per the rather unreliable source.
As per other reports, United remain 'optimistic' on keeping Pogba at Old Trafford beyond the summer.
