Real Madrid are very confident of landing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.
According to ESPN, Los Blancos are confident of adding Paul Pogba to a list of high profile summer signings that already include Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Ferland Mendy, Eder Militao and Rodrygo.
Zinedine Zidane is keen on landing Pogba although Real President Florentino Perez feels that it will be very difficult to sign the Frenchman given Manchester United’s unwillingness to sell him.
However, ESPN state that the Red Devils are holding out for €180 million but Real are confident about reaching an agreement with Manchester United.
Pogba is one of Manchester United’s prized possessions and the club is not willing to sell him until they have found a suitable replacement. There were reports claiming that Manchester United were in for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic while also trying to sign Harry Maguire.
Regardless of whatever transfer fee Manchester United are demanding from Real Madrid, the best way for Real Madrid to sign Pogba would be if they can sell some players to raise funds. Wi
Right now, Zidane has pretty much made it clear that Gareth Bale is no more in his scheme of things and some reports claim that the Welshman is on the move to a China.
Another player Real Madrid can sell is Isco who has also not made many appearances for Los Blancos lately.
Real were reportedly open to selling Marco Asensio with Liverpool interested in the winger. However, with Asensio’s ACL injury that could rule him out for most of the season if not the entirety of it, no club will be keen on splashing too much cash on Asensio.
