Spanish giants Real Madrid are to end their interest in Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba after the club found two alternatives for him according to the publication from the Daily Star.
His agent Mino Raiola is known to be a difficult man that has clashed with several clubs and managers.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has had his own fair share of dealings with Mino Raiola and he’s not prepared to go that route again despite the preference that manager Zinedine Zidane has for his client Paul Pogba.
Zidane pushed for a Paul Pogba transfer last summer when Real Madrid had spent over €300m on transfers and it was easy for Perez to turn him down on that request.

One reason behind the current lack of Real Madrid interest in Paul Pogba is the form of Federico Valverde which has been a bonus for the Spanish giants this season.
No one expected the form shown by the Uruguayan international at the start of the season.
Valverde has made 15 league appearances for Real Madrid this season and he recently won the Man-of-the-match award during the Spanish Super Cup final clash with Atletico Madrid last weekend.
The second Real Madrid alternative for Pogba is the recent news that the Spanish giants have agreed a £47m for Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Donny Van Der Beek ahead of the summer.
