It has been reported according to Express that France international Paul Pogba ought to be on his way to Real Madrid by now but the deal is being delayed by Ajax central defender Matthijs de Ligt.

It is no longer news that Paul Pogba is pushing for a move out of Old Trafford and Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is keen on him as well but his agent Mino Raiola is busy trying to sort out the transfer of Matthijs de Ligt to handle that of the World Cup winner afterward.

Matthijs de Ligt, 19, is being wanted by a number of top teams in Europe, Man United, Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain are all keen to land him but he is not in a rush to make a decision as he will only wait until after the UEFA Nations League for Holland before coming out to say where he would be heading to.

Until that has been sorted out, there is no way Mino Raiola would be able to press for the move of the French midfielder to Real Madrid.

However, Man United have given up on keeping the former Juventus star as it is now getting clearer that he would be leaving.
