Man United transfer news: Paul Pogba isn’t free yet as Asensio’s injury leaves Madrid crawling back to Man United for Pogba signature.
Zidane seemed very focused on his attacking aspect with Marcos Asensio fit but the Spanish’s injury would mean him been off for almost the whole season. A very bad omen for Zidane’s plans of rebuilding the fallen Santiago Bernabeu.
According to Mirror, Zidane despite knowing the complexity of landing top-target, Paul Pogba, has called on the club President, Florentino Perez to revive the deal and as well fire it up by pricing up the deal.
Man United are not willing to let the Frenchman leave, especially now Solskjaer praises his qualities in his two-man midfield strategy. A price-tag of £180m is hanging around Pogba’s neck.
A price the Red Devils believe would be too high for the Spanish Giants who have splashed around £300m on the transfer market this season.
Man United have till the 5pm of 8th August to sign a replacement for the Frenchman, unless they are 100% sure and have agreed with the World Cup winner that he isn’t leaving.
While at the other end, Los Blancos have still have the remaining two weeks of the transfer window to lure Pogba and Manchester United with a cumbersome deal.
But considering the finances, Real Madrid also plan to dispose some players for cash, Gareth Bale and roaming James Rodriguez.
