Manchester United have responded to Juventus’ interest in Paul Pogba by setting a £150 million asking price, The Times report.

The paper report United feel confident that Juventus cannot meet this figure.

United do not intend to sell Pogba this summer. He is under contract to 2021, and the club has an option to extend this to 2022.

Pogba signed for a then world record £89 million fee in 2016.

Fresh challenge for De Gea

The Times also claim PSG are set to ramp up interest in David de Gea.

PSG released Gianluigi Buffon yesterday and the paper report they ‘could’ now make a bid for De Gea.

United are not in such a good position with De Gea, who has only one year left on his current deal at Old Trafford.

 

Player and club are said to be ‘not close’ to agreeing an extension.

This week we looked at United’s recent links to four goalkeepers, noting it was a sign of the club’s worry about the Spaniard.
