Spanish giants Real Madrid are planning to make a £125 million bid to bring Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba to the Bernabeu this summer, according to reports.
Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is a long-term fan of his countryman and tried to sign him three summers ago when Pogba decided instead to join United for a then world record £89 million.
With Zidane planning a major revamp of the Madrid squad, Pogba is a name towards the top of the list of targets, according to The Sun.
The player also admitted in an interview recently that it was a dream for him to play for the club. He also spoke of his admiration for Zidane.
However, this doesn’t mean Pogba wants to leave United right now. He is believed to be happy in Manchester, and is enjoying playing under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was confirmed as United’s permanent manager yesterday (March 28). Indeed, his form since the Norwegian took over has been impressive.
United also don’t want to sell one of their star players. Pogba will be one of the players Solskjaer builds his team around.
But if Madrid want to test United’s resolve it will take a bid of at least £125 million, according to The Sun.
