Man United reject Real Madrid bid for Paul Pogba which included James Rodriguez in player-plus-cash deal
Manchester United have reportedly rejected a £27.4million plus James Rodriguez bid for Paul Pogba from Real Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane wants to sign the France star before the LaLiga transfer window closes on September 2.
Pogba missed United’s final pre-season game against AC Milan on Saturday with a minor back problem, but featured in a Red Devils XI against Blackburn Under-23s the following day.
The Times claim Old Trafford chiefs turned down Real Madrid’s first offer for Pogba over the weekend, which included Colombia playmaker James in a player-plus-cash deal.
Real’s modest £27.4m bid is believed to be way off United’s £150m valuation of the 26-year-old.
Despite Pogba admitting ‘it could be time for a new challenge’ in June, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ‘no doubts’ the midfielder will remain at Old Trafford.

The Norwegian expects Pogba to be fit for the club’s opening Premier League game against Chelsea this week.
He said: “It’s not an injury, it’s just some pain. I spoke to him after training and he didn’t feel right.
“I wasn’t going to risk anything this weekend. He’ll probably be back early on next week training.
“He should be okay for Chelsea.”
Real’s opening bid for Pogba could suggest they do not have the funds to sign the former Juventus ace.
The Spanish giants have failed to offload unwanted winger Gareth Bale, who earns £600,000-a-week, after his move to China collapsed last month.
