Manchester United are determined to keep hold of Paul Pogba this summer after the France international admitted recently that he is looking for a new challenge.

Real Madrid and Juventus have an interest in signing Pogba this summer but United chief Ed Woodward is determined to keep Pogba at the club.

According to Daily Mail, Woodward is set to offer Pogba a pay rise that will up his current £290,000-a-week pay to nearer the £500,000 being picked up by United’s top earner Alexis Sanchez.

Woodward is reluctant to sell Pogba, who still has two years left on his contract with United having an option to extend by another year, because Pogba is central to the club’s commercial interests.

It is understood Manchester United will only consider selling Pogba if the club receives an offer of at least £150m for the France international.

Pogba joined Manchester United in 2016 from Juventus for a then world record fee of £89million.
