Man Utd ace Pogba and Zidane pushing for Real Madrid deal

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has received fresh encouragement over a 2020 move to Real Madrid.

Okdiario says while a January move is unlikely, Pogba has been assured that Real coach Zinedine Zidane remains determined to bring him to Spain next year.

And the feeling is mutual, as while Juventus are also keen, Pogba has made it clear his priority is to play for Zidane in Madrid.

Pogba and Zidane pushed hard for a transfer last summer, but a deal stalled as United refused to budge from their €200m valuation.

However, with Pogba's deal expiring in 2021, there is a belief United will drop their price to a more reasonable assessment over the summer given it will be their last chance to get value for money from the midfielder's sale.
