MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly demanding £150million for Paul Pogba.
The Independent claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to keep the Real Madrid target this summer.
And United have now slapped their club-record signing with a huge price-tag to keep Los Blancos at bay.
La Liga rivals Barcelona are also said to be interested in the France World Cup winner.
And they could hold an advantage with Real reportedly unwilling to meet Pogba’s mammoth £15m-a-year wages.
United have already lined up Leicester loanee Youri Tielemans as a replacement.
But Solskjaer expects Pogba to remain at Old Trafford and has the 26-year-old in his plans for next season.
However, there will still be a number of high-profile departures this summer as the Red Devils look to shake things up in the transfer window.
