Former European champions Real Madrid will have to raise €150m in player sales to be able to sign either Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen or Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.

This is according to the publication from the Daily Mail which claimed that the Spanish giants will have to raise the said amount for further signings due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.

It was that Real Madrid will have to raise money from the sale of some of their players at the club if they want to sign a new midfielder this summer.

Real Madrid are in the market for a new midfielder with the Premier League duo of Christian Eriksen and Paul Pogba at the top of their transfer list though the latter would be more expensive both in transfer fees and wages.

Apart from Real Madrid, Paul Pogba has been linked with a return to Italian champions Juventus whom he left for Manchester United in 2016 after a four-year spell in Turin.

Juventus received £89m for the transfer of Paul Pogba three years ago.

French World Cup winner Pogba had earlier signed for Juventus on a free transfer while he was starting out his career at Manchester United.
