With superstar Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United in doubt, the club have reportedly made a huge decision on what they will do with the Real Madrid target.
According to the Tuttomercatoweb, United will only let their club record signing leave if they receive a bid of up to £138 million (R2.5 billion) for the player.
The English club reportedly hopes this figure will chase any suitors for Pogba away, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer determined to hang on to the midfielder.
In addition, the United coach is reportedly considering to hand Pogba the club's armband, with Antonio Valencia confirmed to depart once his contract expires. According to ESPN, Solskjaer hopes more responsibility could help to end speculation over his future.
Los Blancos and Paris Saint-Germain have shown interest in the 26-year-old, as has his former club Juventus, though the report claims the Italian giants would be unwilling to match United’s asking price.
Zinedine Zidane is believed to be a huge admirer of the player, who has admitted this season that playing for Real is every professional footballer’s dream.
These comments landed Pogba in hot water at his club and among fans, especially as he had also been in poor form on the field at the time of making these remarks.
Although he was criticised heavily this season, the French international enjoyed his finest campaign in terms of goal contributions, having scored 16 times and assisting 11 strikes in 47 matches across all competitions.
