Manchester United directors have told Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola that the French midfielder will not be allowed to leave Old Trafford for less than £130million.
Pogba has attracted interest from Real Madrid with Zinedine Zidane hoping to lure him to Spain in the summer as he looks to rebuild his squad for next season.
However, United are reluctant to see their star man go and plan to offer him a new mega-money contract to secure his long-term future.
Reports in Spain suggest Pogba is open to the idea of playing for Zidane but Raiola has been informed by United they will not make it easy for Madrid to seal a deal.
Marca claim United have slapped a £130m price tag on the France international in effort to ward off interest from the Spanish giants.
Real remain hopeful of signing Pogba but are now also considering alternative options.
Pogba has played an integral role in helping transform United’s season since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival back in December.
He scored twice from the spot at the weekend as they beat West Ham 2-1 to claim three vital points in the race for the Champions League spots.
United are also contemplating handing Pogba the captain’s armband on a full-time basis in an attempt to sweeten a deal for him to remain at the club.
