Man Utd star Paul Pogba was offered to Real Madrid
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has already claimed he was offered the chance to sign Pogba in the January transfer window.
And his agent Mino Raiola appears to have touted other clubs in Europe regarding their interest in the player.
That is according to Sports Illustrated, who claim Real were offered the chance to sign the France international during the January transfer window.
Pogba has endured a miserable time of late at United, having fallen out with manager Jose Mourinho.
He scored twice in the 3-2 win over Manchester City last weekend – a major boost for his confidence with the World Cup looming.
Paul Pogba was also offered to Manchester City in January
Real Madrid decided against signing Paul Pogba
Sports Illustrated claim Real were not interested in landing Pogba when they were offered the chance to secure a deal.
The report claims Real felt they ‘dodged a bullet’ when failing to beat United to the player back in 2016.
They also didn’t want to match his mega wage demands.
Paul Pogba cost United a then-world record £86m two years ago when joining from Juventus.
The 25-year-old has so far struggled to live up to the expectations set by his return to Old Trafford.
Real are known to have held talks with Pogba’s representatives in the final few weeks of his Juventus career.
But United stumped up the cash to bring him back to Manchester.
