Real Madrid Manchester United don’t want to sell
Manchester United have made it clear that they don’t want to sell Paul Pogba this summer.
The midfielder, who has said himself that he’d like a new challenge, has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.
But his club know that they won’t be able to find a player of his quality to replace him given that they’re playing in the Europa League this season.
United don’t need the money and will only consider an offer from beyond the transfer market to sell their most prised possession.
Manchester United have never been a selling club and have never given in to pressure. The latest example of that is David de Gea.
The goalkeeper was strongly tipped to join Los Blancos in 2015, but sources close to the Spanish club reported that Real Madrid only made contact with United at 11:59 on the morning of the final day of the window.
Then came the famous fax machine situation and United kept hold of their most important player after all.
As MARCA reported on Sunday, United will only listen to offers for Pogba once they have a replacement signed up.
Pogba has travelled to Australia for United‘s pre-season tour and will have to apply the pressure on his club himself if he’s going to get his move.
The Frenchman hopes to reason with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and tell him that he’d like to leave for Real Madrid this summer.
Mino Raiola has claimed that Pogba has made it clear to the board that he wants out.
Zinedine Zidane is a big admirer of Pogba and Real Madrid want to enter talks with Manchester United, who they have a good relationship with.
However, due to the current market and United‘s unwillingness to sell, Los Blancos will have to cough up a fee in the region of 180 million euros to bring him to Madrid – a record transfer for any Spanish club.
