Pogba to be offered United captaincy to head off Real interest

Manchester United are ready to offer Paul Pogba the captaincy in a bid to head off interest from the 26 year old from Real Madrid.

In recent weeks the French World Cup winner has been the subject of an intense PR initiative launched by Real as they try to entice him to Spain as Zinedine Zidane looks to rebuild his faltering squad.

However, United have told the player they have no intention of selling him and, to show him how much he is valued, they are ready to offer him the club captaincy, taking over from Antonio Valencia who is leading in the summer. They are also ready to open negotiations with him over a new long term contract reports The Daily Mirror.

It was Pogba’s two penalties against West Ham on Saturday night that secured a lacklustre United a valuable win over West Ham that kept their interest in a top four finish alive.
