So says the Daily Mirror, with the paper claiming that the Old Trafford board have decided to call Real’s bluff.
Believing that the Spanish giants won’t be able to afford the French midfielder when they are in need of a major overhaul of their squad, United told the Bernabeu outfit of their price tag last week.
Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has been making overtures at Pogba in recent weeks but according to Spanish newspaper Marca Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has been told by United “that the Frenchman will not be allowed to leave on the cheap”.
The Mirror adds that with Pogba’s contract set to expire in June 2021 United intend to open negotiations over a new deal “as soon as next month”.
