Man Utd issue no-nonsense Paul Pogba message to Real Madrid

The David de Gea situation is another matter, although one in which United lack any real strength, and it seems as though the lessons have been learnt from the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009, with the club likely to demand players in exchange for Pogba.

However, the Red Devils recent defeat at Moneliux by Wolves saw the Old Trafford dwellers fall to sixth, two points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal.

Paul Pogba answered that it was a "dream" to play for Real Madrid and to work with French legend Zinedine Zidane when quizzed about it during the recently concluded worldwide break, leading to massive speculation that the midfielder was angling for a move away from Manchester United in the summer.

Bartomeu told ESPN FC that the Camp Nou outfit had reached an agreement with Juve and Pogba's agent Mino Raiola a year earlier, which meant they could match any offer that the Italian champions accepted.

On the other hand, Zidane is keen on rebuilding the Los Blancos squad at the end of the campaign, no thanks to their below-the-par performance this term.

Jordan knocked down other claims used to justify the security clearance investigation, which he called a "reckless decision". The controversy involves a long-serving White House bureaucrat named Tricia Newbold . "I just don't know".

Any new deal would need a huge wage increase with Pogba now on a basic of £300,000 (R5.5m) a week, significantly less than flop Sanchez's £505,000.

And with De Gea heading into the final leg of his contract next season, the 28-year-old can pen a pre-contract with any of his suitors in January.

With Ander Herrera's future uncertain, now could be the ideal time for Solskajer to give McTominay his wings.

Solskjaer has a decision to make when it comes to his midfield options.
