Manchester United set deadline for Paul Pogba transfer

Manchester United have set a deadline for Paul Pogba's potential move to Real Madrid.

The La Liga side have been linked with a move for the French international, since Zinedine Zidane's return to the club, with the 47-year old making no secret of his admiration for the midfielder.

Despite already spending over €300m in transfers ahead of the new season, Zidane is determined to fit Pogba in as the final piece of his jigsaw for 2019-20.

The former Juventus star has consistently stated that he wants to leave Old Trafford, but the Premier League side are determined to receive at least €130m for the 26-year old.

According to reports in the Daily Mirror, United have informed Real Madrid that they will not accept any bids for Pogba after the Premier League transfer window deadline of August 8, as they would not be able to purchase a replacement.

If they fail in a move for Pogba, Real Madrid still have time to sign players, with the La Liga transfer window open until September 2.
