Real Madrid's pursuit of Manchester United's wantaway star Paul Pogba has reportedly suffered a setback.

The Red Devils are desperate to keep hold of their midfielder, who has two years left to run on his current contract, despite interest from Real Madrid .

However the French superstar is keen to make the move to Spain and has previously made clear his desire to play for Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

Spanish daily AS claimed on Tuesday that the Bernabeu giants have opened discussions with their Premier League counterparts and told them to name their price for Pogba.

But United are not willing to part ways with their star player as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees him as an integral part of his plans next season.
