Manchester United has rejected an offer of £ 27.4 million-plus James Rodriguez of Real Madrid by Paul Pogba, according to The Times.
The Colombian has been considered a surplus of the requirements at Real Madrid this season and Zinedine Zidane is looking to download it. Pogba has been looking to get away from Old Trafford, with Real its main suitors.
United has applied a price of £ 150 million to the French, so Rodriguez’s offer plus £ 27.4 million falls well below what they are looking for.
Pogba could not travel to Cardiff for a friendly against AC Milan, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer attributed his absence to an injury and administrative error.
The midfielder ended up lining up against Blackburn Rovers Under-23 on Sunday, and Solskjaer says he should be able to play against Chelsea in the first game of the Premier League season next week.
