Manchester United has hardened their position Paul Pogba by privately claiming that they value the midfielder at over £ 150 million, sources have told ESPN FC.
The French international has suggested that he would like to find a "new challenge" this summer, amid the interest of Real Madrid and Juventus.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Wednesday that United will not be bullied to sell Pogba after a series of public statements from his agent, Mino Raiola.
The World Cup winner, 26, has three more years on his contract and sources have told ESPN FC that United believes he is worth more than £ 150 million in line with the peak in the transfer market due to Neymar& # 39; £ 198m move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.
Pogba arrived in a then £ 89.3 million world record of Juventus in 2016. After traveling to Perth as part of United & # 39; s preseason tour squadron, Pogba would play against Perth Glory on Saturday in the first game of the summer.
Perth Glory suffers from a lack of figures for the friendly and may be forced to occupy two 15-year-olds, one of the son of coach Tony Popovic.
Meanwhile, sources told ESPN FC that United has relinquished a move for Mario Lemina. The midfielder is ready to leave Southampton this summer.
