Paul Pogba has been the subject of transfer interest from Juventus and Real Madrid this summer but it looks like Manchester United will hang on to his services for the new season at least.
The Frenchman has two years left on his current deal at Old Trafford though Manchester United have the option of a third year.
€180m-rated Pogba has been linked with a return to former club Juventus as well as former Spanish La Liga champions Real Madrid but the two clubs have been priced out of a move for him despite the fact that the player is keen to leave Manchester United for a new challenge.
