What Real Madrid think Man Utd star Paul Pogba wants to do amid Christian Eriksen decision


Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has made his desire to bring Pogba to the Bernabeu clear to his bosses in the Spanish capital as they look set to continue their spending spree.

The Manchester United midfielder has been open about his desire to play under French icon Zidane, and he could get his wish this summer.

The Daily Star reckon Real believe Pogba, who can already speak Spanish, will jump at the chance to link up with them.

Meanwhile, Eriksen hinted while on international duty with Denmark that he is unsure on where his future lies, before admitting that he was up for a new challenge.

However, the 27-year-old looks set to stay in north London as Spurs look to use him as an example to rid them of there mantle as being a ‘selling’ club.

Madrid have already sealed multi-million pound deals for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic and Porto defender Eder Militao with Lyon defender Ferland Mendy set to follow suit.

In terms of outgoing deals, Zidane has outlined Dani Ceballos, James Rodriguez and most notably Gareth Bale as surplus to requirements for his first full season during his second spell as boss.

Pobga still has two years on his contract at Old Trafford and his £300,000-a-week deal could prove to be a stumbling block in the proposed transfer, but if both clubs can reach an agreement then he will leave United for the second time in his career.

Pogba hit back at his critics this week ahead of Madrid’s reported interest, and mentioned his outlandish hair styles as part of his personality.

“I always play like that and, thank God, I won the World Cup like that,” Pogba told The Times.

“Body language, haircut, all these things is just to speak.

“Since I was a kid I play like this. It’s not a problem when we win.

“Only when we lose or if I have a bad performance it becomes a problem.

“I become another player because of the transfer [back to United]. Because it was the biggest transfer of history at the time, you get judged differently.

“You expect more because of the price tag. A good game becomes a normal game, a top game will be a good game.”

Pogba also outlined why the £89million fee United paid for his services was so high, and mentioned his position on the pitch.

He added: “It’s a big amount. It went down when other transfers came, so it’s fine. I think it’s also because I’m a midfielder.”
