Manchester Uniteds club-record signing admitted he was ready for a new challenge over the weekend, with both Real Madrid and Juventus poised to battle for his signature this summer.
However, The Telegraph report that Uniteds valuation of Pogba – which stands at an astonishing £160million – has virtually ended any hopes of a transfer before they really began.
Any deal has been complicated by the fight that United will want a replacement in place before Pogba is allowed to go, but the transfer window closes three-and-a-half weeks earlier in England than in Spain or Italy.
United are also unconvinced by the players both Juve and Real would be prepared to offer in exchange, but a cash-only deal would likely be beyond the means of both teams.
Furthermore, according to The Telegraphs report, United do not anticipate Pogba kicking up a fuss if he is prevented from leaving Old Trafford this summer.
United bosses are fully aware that this season is a pivotal one for Pogba ahead of Euro 2020 next summer, while his commitment and application did not waiver when he was denied a move to Barcelona last summer.
