Immediate past European champions Real Madrid have made a decision on their interest in Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

According to Spanish radio BernebeuDigital, Real Madrid have decided to pull out of the race for the French World Cup winner.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane had been pushing for the transfer of Paul Pogba from Manchester United until now.

Apart from Real Madrid, Italian Serie A champions Juventus are also interested in a move for Pogba who spent four years at the club between 2012 and 2016.

Real Madrid officials believe Paul Pogba is too expensive as they will have to spend in the excess of £150m on his transfer in addition to his astronomical wages.

The Los Merengues are not willing to spend a lot of money on Pogba who has shown to be inconsistent in recent years, especially in a Manchester United shirt.

Despite his inconsistent form, Pogba had the best season of his career in the last campaign after he scored 16 goals and also added 11 assists in all competitions.

13 of his goals came in the Premier League as Manchester United finished the season in the sixth position thus missing out on Champions League football.

Real Madrid will now concentrate on other midfield targets like Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen and Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Donny Van Der Beek.
