Manchester United Raise Paul Pogba Price-tag To £180m After Agent Raiola Comments

Manchester United have now raised their price-tag for midfielder Paul Pogba to £180m after his agent Mino Raiola repeatedly made it clear he wanted to leave the club, MySportDab reports.

It was thought that United would demand £150m for Pogba if they relent over his wish to leave Old Trafford for the second time in his career.

But after Pogba and Raiola both publicly indicated his intention to go this summer amid interest from Real Madrid and Juventus, United are ready to dig in and ramp up the price.

The United hierarchy have no wish to sell Pogba, who has up to three years left on his contract, and will make it as difficult as possible for him to leave.

But if they are forced to sell their record signing, the club are determined to get the best price possible.

A £180m fee would mean United double their money on a player who cost £89m from Juventus three years ago.

Pogba is set to play in the first game on tour against Perth Glory in the Optus Stadium on Saturday after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer warned on United's arrival in Australia that their hand would not be forced.

"We are Man United and we don't have to sell,' said Solskjaer.

"As far as I'm aware there have been no bids for any players.

"There's been loads of talk and speculation about many of our players, both ins and outs, but for me it's business as usual. When you're at Man Utd you expect these things to pop up in the summer.

"Paul has never been a concern for me. When he is on the pitch he's working hard - a true professional and a proud boy."

MySportDab reports United paid a club-record £89m fee to Juventus to lure Pogba back to Manchester in 2016.
