Manchester United have reportedly rejected Real Madrid‘s offer of £27.4m plus James Rodriguez for the transfer of Paul Pogba.
The Frenchman stressed earlier in the summer that he wanted a “new challenge” elsewhere, with Real Madrid said to be his favoured destination.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made it clear on Saturday that he fully expected Pogba to be a United player for the 2019-20 campaign.
According to the Times, Real’s offer of £27.4m plus Rodriguez has been flatly rejected by United.
The Premier League club, who value Pogba at £150m, have been confident throughout the summer that the midfielder, despite his agent’s claims, would stay at Old Trafford for at least another year.
Real cannot meet the midfielder’s valuation after spending £300m on transfers during this window, and are reportedly willing to be patient in their pursuit of the 26-year-old.
