Zinedine Zidane has won the battle to make Manchester United’s Paul Pogba his primary midfield target this summer, according to reports.
It looks like being a busy summer of change at Real Madrid with Luka Jovic and Eden Hazard already confirmed ahead of the new season.
With their attentions now turning to central midfield, Marca‘s front page splash on Tuesday (via Sport Witness) is all about Pogba with Los Blancos ready to fight for the France international ‘with everything’.
Pogba is one of a number of midfielders linked with Madrid, including Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen and Ajax’s Donny van de Beek but Zidane does not want ‘Eriksen, Van de Beek or anyone else’.
United are believed to value Pogba at €150million with Real keen to get the price down and Pogba is understood to be ‘willing to pressure’ the Red Devils into letting him go.
Marca add that agent Mino Raiola is ‘in charge of the operation,’ while Real are thought to be keen on getting Gareth Bale involved in an attempt to bring Pogba’s asking price down.
