The France international will ‘insist’ on getting his dream move over the line this summer, according to reports in Spain
Manchester United are unwilling to sell him, but Paul Pogba will ‘insist’ on a move to Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.
Zinedine Zidane is keen on adding to the midfielder to his spending spree that has seen Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic and Ferland Mendy join.
And Spanish newspaper Marca report Pogba will not be deterred in his desire to play for France legend Zidane.
One advantage Real Madrid have – in addition to being one of the biggest clubs in the world – is that they can offer Champions League football.
United, meanwhile, face a season in the Europa League as a result of their sixth place finish.
Speaking to talkSPORT, French journalist Julien Laurens explained his heart is set on playing for Real.
“Yeah, he’s very open about it,” Laurens said. “He was with us in March when we were there with the national team and he told us it is the dream of every player to play for Real Madrid.
“And he is in that state of mind right now. I think going back to Juventus is an option and I don’t think he would be against it completely.
“There are a lot of obstacles between Paul Pogba and Real Madrid but I still think it is a very big possibility though.”
Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, also has Matthijs De Ligt on his books and is attempting to sort his future out, too.
The 19-year-old Ajax captain has been linked with United and finalising his transfer is going to be a lot easier than Pogba’s, with the saga expected to run all summer.
The 26-year-old joined the club from Juventus in a 2016 deal that saw United pay £89m and is one of the most marketable footballers on the planet.
Marca note this has definitely not gone unnoticed by the marketing department at the Bernabeu.
If he does eventually get his move to Spain, Real Madrid fans will hope it is one step closer to Kylian Mbappe joining.
