Manchester United have rejected an offer from Real Madrid of €100m (£90m) plus Dani Ceballos for Paul Pogba, according to the Daily Star.
The Red Devils are reportedly not interested in any part-exchange deals and would demand just money for the France international.
Ceballos is said to be interesting Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham after having been told to leave the Bernabeu this summer.
The midfielder is valued at €40m by Real and was impressive as Spain won the European Under 21 Championships last month.
United are, however, looking to play hardball on Pogba, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having defended the midfielder during a press conference today:
“Paul has never been a concern for me. When he is on the pitch, he is working hard, he is a true professional and he is a proud boy.”
“I can’t be sitting here talking about Paul all the time and what agents are saying. We have got a few years left of his contract and, for me, he has been fantastic when he has come back in training.”
Solskjaer is likely attempting to ensure that no bridges are burned if no acceptable offer is made for the Frenchman.
Pogba’s representative Mino Raiola has tried to force the club’s hand in recent days by explicitly stating that the 26-year-old wants to leave, but United are not likely to be swayed by the agent’s tactics.
