English Premier League powerhouse Manchester United have asked for a massive 200 million euro for Paul Pogba with Spanish giants Real Madrid showing interest in buying the French World Cup winner from them.
According to a report in Marca, United don’t want to sell the midfielder and have now asked a sum which is beyond Real Madrid.
Real boss Zinedine Zidane has been keen on roping in Pogba but United, according to a report, are not willing to negotiate.
The 2018 World Cup winner Pogba made it clear in June that he is interested in a new challenge away from Old Trafford and speculation has been rife ever since of a move to either Real Madrid or Juventus.
Pogba is currently with the rest of the United squad on their pre-season tour of Australia where they beat Leeds United 4-0 in Perth on Wednesday.
Paul Pogba is a French professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Manchester United and the French national team. The 26-year-old operates mainly as a central midfielder but can also be deployed as an attacking midfielder, defensive midfielder, and deep-lying playmaker.
Internationally, he captained France to victory at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup and took home the award for the Best Player for his performances during the tournament.
