Pundit claims Manchester United would accept £120m for Pogba

At the moment, it is difficult to get away from reports surrounding Manchester United pair Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba.

Questions have been raised by fans and pundits alike regarding the midfielder’s best playing position.

It has been widely suggested that the Frenchman does not thrive in a two-man midfield and that he needs to be pushed further forward in order to get the best out of him.

Whenever there is a sense of conflict at a club, rumours begin rumbling that the player could be on his way out.

According to The Sun, Spanish giants Real Madrid are planning to launch an audacious move for Pogba when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

Former Rangers boss Ally McCoist believes that United would be open to selling their £89m man if a staggering bid of £120m is offered.

While speaking on talkSPORT, the Scotsman said:

“I think United would bite their hand off [if £120m bid was made]. He definitely doesn’t look comfortable playing in that [two-man midfield] position at this moment in time. Clearly, he is not doing well and Mourinho has to be concerned about his level of performance.

“Where he had success he had a free role and freedom to play in that manner and I definitely that that is where he would be able to express himself and you would get the best out of him. At this moment in time, United are absolutely not getting the best out of him. I think going to Real Madrid could be a deal that suits all parties.”

Meanwhile, while speaking to reporters at a press conference, Mourinho rubbished rumours of a rift between himself and Pogba, describing them as “lies”.
