17 Jun 2019, 14:20

It's widely expected that World Cup winner Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United this summer but suitors Real Madrid won't break the bank for the Frenchman.

As far as United’s board are concerned, it would take an ‘astronomical’ offer to convince them to sell and they are planning for next season with Pogba still at the club according to Metro sport.

Pogba enjoyed his best season for Manchester United last term, leading the club’s goals and assists charts, and any club looking to sign him will need to stump up around £150million.

However, that's where the clubs are likely to reach a stalemate and sticking point, with Get French Football News reporting that Madrid won't go higher than €120m, a figure that is well short of the number quoted above. This could be seen as the Spanish giants playing hardball, knowing that Pogba wants out of Manchester. 

Zinedine Zidane, the Real manager, wants countryman Pogba as he overhauls his squad after a desperately disappointing season for the club. Christian Eriksen has been mentioned as a target but Pogba remains Zidane's preference There is a belief at Real that United will sell for the right price. 

Pogba's recent public claims that he is looking for a new challenge might help to facilitate the deal. This is definitely a story worth watching as it develops and could turn out to be the biggest transfer saga on the European summer.
