Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid are increasingly confident that they can pull off a deal for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.

This is according to sources close to popular media channel ESPN.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has been pushing for a move for Paul Pogba but the former Spanish champions are yet to make an official bid for him.

The Spaniards have already spent over €300m on transfers and might need to sell some of their players to fund a club-record move for Paul Pogba.

The Manchester United star has previously talked about seeking a new challenge elsewhere after three years in his second spell at the club.

His agent Mino Raiola also revealed that his client is on his way out of the club at the end of last month but the French World Cup winner is still a Manchester United player.

Pogba came through the Manchester United Academy before leaving the club for Italian Serie A champions Juventus on a free transfer in the summer of 2012.

The 26-year-old spent four years at Juventus where he won four straight league titles before making a return to Old Trafford in a then world-record deal of £85.3m.
