Real Madrid’s latest bid consisting of James Rodríguez plus £27.4 million for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been rejected by the club, according to the Times.

The La Liga club have chased Pogba since the transfer window opened, though after a spending spree that included signing Eden Hazard from Chelsea has prevented Zinedine Zidane from having the funds available to meet United’s demands.

According to the Telegraph, United now feel comfortable that Madrid can’t afford the French international given their latest offer which included attacking midfielder Rodríguez alongside a transfer fee in the region of £27m.

The Telegraph’s Northern Football Correspondent, James Ducker, reported “The derisory offer – dismissed out of hand last week – is thought to have confirmed United’s long-held suspicions that Real do not have the funds to finance a serious move for Pogba after a summer in which the Spanish giants have already committed more than £270m in transfer fees.”

The Red Devils value their star man at £160m & with Real Madrid wanting to flog the want-away Colombia midfielder for around £46m, you can see a considerate discrepancy between the two valuations.

Ducker also reports that whilst Pogba still wishes to leave Manchester this summer, the club and Solskjaer have been encouraged by his attitude during pre-season. Madrid’s latest offer also dismisses the idea that Ajax’s Donny Van de Beek. who Los Blancos are currently chasing, is an alternative for Pogba.

With a potential move for Paulo Dybala deal falling through and no traction with Sporting’s Bruno Fernandes, United will be even more desperate to keep Pogba ahead of the start of the new season. With three days of the window to go, we may see plenty more twists and turns before Chelsea travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
