Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane reportedly still wants the club to sign Red Devils playmaker Paul Pogba, but his eagerness isn’t shared by the Spanish giants.
It’s been a frustrating season for France international, as he has been limited to only eight games across all tournaments due to ongoing injury problems.
Although he enjoyed a glittering spell at Bianconeri and won the World Cup with France in 2018, Paul hasn’t quite been able to produce at the level he’s capable of on a consistent basis since returning to Man United in 2016.
That has led to constant question marks over his influence from certain pundits and seemingly never-ending transfer speculation over his future as seen with the Sun last week, and it doesn’t appear to be stopping any time soon either.
It’s claimed that the French tactician is still keen on signing the Frenchman but there are two main issues with why a potential switch to Los Blancos is unlikely to happen.
In order to secure a move, an agreement on a transfer fee and personal terms are needed. The report suggests that La Liga giants are put off by Paul Pogba’s asking price, which although may be reduced now from the €100m requested before the covid19 pandemic, is still too high as they will only sign off on a swoop if it’s considered a bargain.
