Real Madrid ‘wink’ to Paul Pogba
Zinedine Zidane is an admirer of the qualities of the French midfielder at Manchester United and it seems that there is a good chance that the Merengue club can guarantee the services of the world champion this summer…
SITUATION IN UNITED CAN FACILITATE BUSINESS
Paul Pogba’s life at Manchester United has been frankly troubled with the player getting involved in several clashes in José Mourinho’s era that have deteriorated his relationship with the club and fans. This season, things have not gotten much better due to an injury that has kept him out of the pitch for a long time and the Red Devils managers may well be considering selling them in the transfer market as a way to recover part of the investment made. on the player.
Manchester United invested 105 million euros to sign the player to Juventus in 2016, but his career at the English club has been too intermittent to justify that amount so the club will have every legitimacy to think about a sale that recovers some of the money.
In addition, the contract for the all-terrain midfielder expires in 2021 and the club coached by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be almost forced to sell the player now, under pain of seeing him leave at zero cost in January.
In the contract clause, the club can unilaterally renew its bond with the player for another year, but given the recent problems between club and player this decision should only aggravate the situation.
REAL MADRID AGRADARIA PAUL POGBA
With just seven games played this season, it is perfectly normal for Manchester United to go on sale at the end of the season and Real Madrid seems to be the club most interested in guaranteeing their services. Zidane is an admirer of his qualities and will welcome a strengthening of his aged midfield with a 27-year-old player who will arrive with an immense desire to prove to be one of the best midfielders in the world.
Another situation that can facilitate your arrival at Real Madrid is the amount that Manchester United can ask for the player. Until a few months ago, the Manchester club was uncompromising in its idea of only selling the French midfielder for 115 million euros, but the recent crisis caused by Covid-19 should lower the player’s price below 100 million euros .
Thus, Real Madrid may be better able to convince Manchester United to sell at an acceptable value, and it should also be noted that the Spanish club has several quality players on loan or on the way out who can also be involved in the business in a way to lower the value of French.
James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale or Mateo Kovacic are some of the possibilities that can be placed on the table and that may even please those responsible for Manchester United.
YOUTH IN EXPECTATION, BUT WITHOUT FINANCIAL ARGUMENTS
Juventus is the other strong possibility of being Paul Pogba’s next destination but, apparently, the Transalpine club is in a relatively weak position from a financial point of view as a consequence of Covid-19. After a possible sale of Cristiano Ronaldo has already been considered, it is unlikely that the club will be willing to open the laces to the stock market with an investment close to 100 million euros.
On the other hand, Paul Pogba himself seems to be more interested in a departure for Real Madrid than in a return to Italy where he was very successful, but naturally he will not have the same enthusiasm that he would have in representing the meringues and playing in the Spanish League. under the command of the French coach Zinedine Zidane.
According to the Spanish newspaper ‘As’, Paul Pogba even established with his agents that Real Madrid is a priority to continue his career and everything indicates that contacts will increase in the coming months with a view to hiring the French midfielder.
MANCHESTER UNITED IN TRANSITION
For United, this could also be an advantageous deal as it will put good money in for a player who has been more of a problem than a solution for the club, thus enabling the club to invest in its summer market targets, namely in Jadon Sancho .
In addition, with Fred, Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic all in good shape the midfield seems to be in good hands and the club may not even miss the Frenchman too much.
