Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford throughout the transfer window, with Real Madrid and Juventus both touted as potential destinations.

Los Blancos, in particular, have been relentless in their pursuit of the 26-year-old, with manager Zinedine Zidane said to be extremely keen to work with his compatriot.

Real have previously had a mega-money deal for Pogba rejected, and now, according to The Times, their most recent offer of £27.4 million (R496 million) plus James Rodriguez has also been turned down. 

The Red Devils are reportedly holding out for a fee of £150 million (R2.7 billion), which would see Pogba become the second-most expensive player of all time, as per Transfermarkt

Real have reportedly already identified an alternative to Pogba in the form of Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Donny van de Beek, but Zidane is apparently adamant Pogba should be signed at any cost.
