Real Madrid prioritising deal for Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba

Real Madrid are prioritising a deal this summer for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

AS says Real coach Zinedine Zidane has long been a fan of his French compatriot.

And this could be the summer in which the 27-year-old finally completes his dream move.

The Red Devils are in a difficult bargaining position, despite Pogba being a star asset.

Their No6's contract will have a year left to run come the summer.

And despite there being an option to trigger an extra year – club chiefs know that they risk frustrating Pogba by doing so, with the midfielder having no intention of staying.

Real Madrid believe that this, coupled with the difficult state of the market following the coronavirus pandemic, could see them bag Pogba for UNDER £90m.
