Manchester United are braced for a battle to be able to keep hold of Paul Pogba this summer amid interest from Real Madrid, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Red Devils are braced for “a fight” to keep the France international at Old Trafford this summer as the speculation about his future continues.

According to the same story, Pogba demanded to join FC Barcelona last summer but Ed Woodward refused to let the 26-year-old go.

The same article now says that the 26-year-old has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid this summer – and the midfielder has told friends that he has no desire to stay at Old Trafford.

According to the same story, Manchester United “are desperate” to sign Pogba as part of a summer rebuild.

However, it is claimed that Manchester United insist that Pogba is not for sale this summer.

Despite that stance, the same article claims that Manchester United may have to listen to offers in excess of £160m for Pogba this summer.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are preparing to return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Huddersfield Town.
