Raiola 'outraged' as Real Madrid pull back from Pogba negotiations

Wantaway Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is facing a major transfer blow.

AS says Pogba's hopes of moving to Real Madrid is now in doubt after Toni Kroos penned new terms this week.

Kroos' new deal, which now runs to 2023, includes a hefty pay-rise which could hit the budget put aside to bringing Pogba to Madrid this summer.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane is demanding Pogba be signed, but his board and president Florentino Perez isn't so sure.

And the commitment of Kroos is being used by directors to argue Pogba is no longer needed and that the budget should be spent on strengthening other team positions.

It's also been revealed the Kroos deal has left Pogba's agent Mino Raiola 'outraged' amid fears the move could now collapse.
