Real Madrid president Florentino agrees with Zidane: Now or never for Pogba

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has agreed with coach Zinedine Zidane to move for Paul Pogba this summer.

Despite his reservations about the Manchester United midfielder, Sport says Florentino has told Zidane they will make a new move for the Frenchman this summer.

The president sees the upcoming transfer window as Real's best chance to land Pogba at an affordable price. Florentino was quoted €180m last year by United chief Ed Woodward.

Along with Florentino, Woodward also agrees this is the best moment to sell Pogba, with the player having a year to run on his existing deal.

It's understood United would be willing to sell for around €100m.
