After the blow from the pre-season match against Athletico Madrid, Real Madrid remain keen on signing Paul Pogba from Manchester United before the end of the transfer window. The France midfielder is open to transfer which the agent Mino Raiola confirm talks is on for a deal away from Old Trafford.
However, United new boss Ole Solskjaer confirms he has plans for Pogba coming season and he remains a Manchester United player.
Pogba remains a crucial player for Manchester United after scoring the highest goal scorer for the club last season with 14 goals and 9 assist in 2018/19 season.
Real Madrid already signed Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Eder Militao, Ferland Mendy, Rodrygo along with players returning from loan such as James Rodriguez from Bayern Munich.
Pogba remains wanted at Real Madrid as Manchester United seems to be on the look for replacement such as Milinkovic Savic and Bruno Fernandes if the deal pulls through before the closing of the transfer window.
Notwithstanding, His (Pogba) decision to leave the club is still unclear as United boss assures he is staying at the club as the rebuild continues with him, Juventus keep monitoring every situation of Paul Pogba as he remains unsettled with the transfer window still open.
Real Madrid – on the other hand – is also keeping an eye on Eriksen situation at Tottenham as he is left with one year on his contract with the club.
With Real Madrid recent disturbing results in the pre-season friendlies, Madrid might pull off some late signing to strengthen the squad on transfer window deadline day.
Paul Pogba was valued between €150m – €160m by Manchester United and Real Madrid might be forced to sign him up if they keep getting vulnerable even before the new season start – with the recent collapse bid to offload Gareth Bale, Zinedine Zidane plan remain unknown as to his rebuild proper as the club begins to plan ahead to get a better result – but, he wouldn’t take a chance going into the new season with low confidence if he wants to get result in the coming campaign.
On the other hand, something needs to be done as new signing Luka Jovic was taken off during the defeat to Athletico Madrid with a left ankle injury which takes the injury list to 5 players after 3 pre-season matches for the Los Blancos.
We wait to see Zidane’s approach on this difficult task as the new Real Madrid coach continue to rebuild since his arrival for the club.
