Clubs unwilling to meet Man United’s £150 million Pogba asking price – Standard

Paul Pogba

Will Pogba leave this summer?

Manchester United are reportedly ‘increasingly uncertain’ any club will move to sign Paul Pogba, after they set a £150 million asking price.

Pogba’s future has been a hot topic for the past 12 months or so now.

The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford, specifically to Real Madrid and Juventus.

Paul Pogba’s brother, Mathias, even seemingly confirmed recently that the midfielder wanted to leave. 

Mino Raiola has done little to quash rumours, either, hinting at a potential move back to Italy in the future.

Now, though, according to a new report, Pogba may not leave because of Manchester United’s £150 million valuation.

Manchester United set £150 million asking price

According to the Evening Standard, Manchester United are ‘increasingly uncertain’ that they will find a buyer at their £150 million asking price.

That could see Pogba priced out of a move, and forced to remain at Old Trafford for another season.

The report claims: ‘It seems certain United will have to lower their expectations – but they would be loath to countenance any deal that saw them make a loss on their £89m record signing.’ 

Despite that, the Standard claim that with Jack Grealish, James Maddison and Donny van de Beek all being tracked, there’s still the possibility United expect Pogba to leave.

But, it’s also claimed that ‘Old Trafford sources have indicated they are prepared to open negotiations on a new contract with Pogba.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also recently suggested that Paul Pogba would be at Manchester United next season.

Pogba will have 12 months left on his current deal this summer, but United have an option for an extra year.
