Manchester United transfer news: Paul Pogba ‘agrees terms’ with Real Madrid and ‘asks Red Devils to sell him’
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has requested a move to Real Madrid after agreeing personal terms with the Spanish club, reports claim.
The Frenchman’s future is a source of constant speculation – and many expect him to join Madrid this summer after he admitted the move would be a ‘dream’.
Bernabeu boss Zinedine Zidane is a known admirer of his compatriot, and according to Spanish outlet AS, Pogba has already agreed a £10million-a-year deal with the La Liga giants.
Nonetheless, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains adamant his star midfielder will stay at Old Trafford.
Speaking ahead of the Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday, the Norwegian said: “You can’t guarantee anything in football but yes, I think Paul is going to be here.

“I can assure you he is very determined to succeed at Manchester United.”
Pogba has been involved in more United goals than any other player this season and was the only non-Liverpool or Manchester City player to feature in the PFA Team of the Year.
But his form has been erratic – and many questioned whether he deserved his place in the PFA’s XI.

“He’s a leader in that dressing room and on the pitch for us. He will be here as far as I can answer that.”
