Man Utd prepared to sell Pogba - but only for top price

Manchester United are prepared to sell Paul Pogba this summer- but only for top price.

The Mirror says United are ready to dig their heels in and hold out for at least £150million for Pogba this summer.

Real Madrid are leading the way to sign Pogba, who has become disillusioned with life at United and wants to move on this summer.

The Spanish giants are understood to be ready to launch a bid of around £135m for the France World Cup winner, in a major summer of investment and rebuilding at the Bernabeu.

But United want at least £150m for the midfielder, which could price the 26-year-old out of his dream move to the Bernabeu to join up with Real's new £130m signing Eden Hazard.

While United are reluctant to lose Pogba, for whom they paid a club record fee of £89m to Juventus in 2016, there is an acceptance within the club that they may be forced to sell if the price is right.
