Man Utd transfer news: Paul Pogba swap deal offered by Real Madrid, £90m plus one player | Football | Sport


Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has confirmed the France international is keen to leave Manchester United this summer.

However, Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hit back, claiming Pogba is going nowhere this summer.

Real Madrid and Juventus are chasing the midfielder this summer, with reports claiming Pogba favours a move to La Liga.

And according to football consultant Ian McGarry, United have already rejected an offer from Real for Pogba.

They say United snubbed Real’s proposal of £90m and midfielder Dani Ceballos for Pogba.

“I was told that Madrid did make an initial offer last Thursday, which was of €100m [£90m] plus Dani Ceballos – who has been starring for Spain’s Under-21s in their European Under-21 championship campaign,” McGarry said on The Transfer Window podcast.

“However, United turned that down flat and said that they were only interested in cash.

“That’s clearly a signal that they do want to reinvest money rather than take any players as a makeweight.”

Speaking last week about Pogba’s future at United, Raiola insisted he’s working on getting the midfielder out of Old Trafford.

He told The Times: “Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on.

“We are in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are.

“Everyone within the club, from the manager to the owner, knows Paul’s wishes.”

However, speaking on United’s pre-season tour, Solskjaer insisted Pogba will not leave Old Trafford, adding there is an agenda against the France star.

“It’s an agenda against Paul, he’s a great, great professional, never been any problems, he has a heart of gold,” he said.

“Jesse and Paul yesterday walking around was portrayed as a fight between the two boys and I know you’re here to sell players and stories but they’re all professional.

“Paul’s never put himself out of the team, always given his best and I can’t report anything other than that agents talk all the time.

“I can’t be sitting here talking about Paul and what agents are saying, we’ve got a few years left of his contract and he’s been fantastic.”
