Manchester United chief Ed Woodward is hell-bent on keeping Paul Pogba at Old Trafford despite ‘Strong’ interest from Real Madrid.

The Red Devils have endured another disastrous campaign, finishing without a trophy and no chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

Most of United’s top stars are not fond of playing in the European second tier at the least Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman has garnered strong interest from Real Madrid and his compatriot Zinedine Zidane who is in charge of the Los Blancos is said to be a fan.

The Frenchman himself has reportedly asked for a move after admitting earlier in the season that ‘it was a dream’ to play for Real Madrid.

Despite all the Speculations, the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is determined to keep hold of the 26-year-old if ESPN is to be believed.

Woodward prevented such a move last year when Barcelona came calling for the world cup winner and is ready to enter showdown talks with Pogba’s Mino Raiola who wants to facilitate a move for Pogba to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is not so determined to keep hold of players that don’t want to play for his side and he previously mentioned that United’s draw against Huddersfield town could be the last for many of his players.

The Norwegian indicated that no player is irreplaceable and many star names still are knocking at United’s doors given the size and stature of the club

“We might not be, but you’d be surprised how many players’ agents have been touting, telling us their players would love to be a part of Manchester United in the future.

“That’s the lure, the potential and size of the club, [the belief] that we will get back to the good days.

“We’ve not been up to the standards we expect, but it’s up to me and the club and that may mean a season without Champions League, who knows?

“But players still want to come to Manchester United and you wouldn’t be surprised by the names that ask.”
