But it seems United have turned down the shockingly-low bid.
Pogba had a fall out with manager Jose Mourinho earlier in the year that saw him lose out his starting place in the team and his future was also up in the air.
Pogba still has three years remaining on his United contract.

With that out of the way he's coming good though we all know he can do even better.

Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, is reportedly flying into Manchester this week and is keen to secure the player's move away from Old Trafford.
He was a regular in Mourinho's midfield, making 37 appearances in all competitions, and was impressive in the win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in April, scoring twice as United came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2.
