Manchester United have set an asking price of £150m in cash to sell Paul Pogba this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is claiming that the Red Devils are looking for a huge fee for the sale of the midfielder this summer in an attempt to ward off interest from Real Madrid.

However, the same story says that despite the huge price tag on Pogba’s head, Real Madrid are still willing to press ahead with plans to try and sign the French World Cup winner.

Pogba’s situation has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks after he admitted in an interview that he would be open to a switch away from Old Trafford.

According to the same story, both Real Madrid and his old club Juventus are interested in signing the 26-year-old this summer, but it is the Spanish giants who are the favorites to land him.

The article says that Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has “earmarked” Pogba as an important new signing as he looks to strengthen his squad this summer.

It is claimed in the same story that Manchester United are seeking a transfer fee of up to £150m in “straight cash” this summer if they are to sell the French midfielder.
