Manchester United's season has been full of ups and downs. First, the team seemed unwilling to make things work under Jose Mourinho's defensive-minded football and now, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought life back to Old Trafford.

Even so, the Red Devils are set to face a key offseason during the summer transfer window, as they know is make or break time and need to make a huge splash in order to go back to their old dominant self.

Notably, that means they can't afford to let go some of the best players on their squad, especially if they're still under contract.

That's the thing with Paul Pogba, as the Frenchman is reportedly orchestrating a move with his agent Mino Raiola to snub the Red Devils and join Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid in the summer.

Even so, ESPN FC reports Manchester United are unwilling to address the possibility of selling the midfielder in the summer, regardless of how much money other teams may put on the table.

Pogba was linked with a move out of the team earlier in the season, with him being one of Mourinho's main scapegoats and Juventus reportedly interested in luring him back to Turin.

Pogba's departure rumors cooled off again amid United's great run under Solskjaer, but Zidane's appointment as Real Madrid's boss has opened the door once again for the 26-year-old to try and make a move to Santiago Bernabeu.

Also, the Frenchman recently flirted with Los Blancos in one of his latest statements, telling the media that playing for Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane was "a dream for anyone".

Now, the team will face the tough challenge of convincing him to further extend his stay at Old Trafford, and they will try and engage in negotiations with him and Raiola over a new contract.
