Real Madrid in talks with Paul Pogba?

The European champions Real Madrid are reportedly in advanced talks to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.

The Frenchman was destined to leave Old Trafford following Jose Mourinho’s departure in December.

However, a run of six defeats in eight matches has seen the Red Devils eliminated from the UEFA Champions League and fall behind in the top-four race, with the 26-year-old playmaker among the players criticised for his form during that slump.

Los Blancos are understood to have held a long-standing interest in the attacker, and Telefoot claims that they are in the advanced stages of bringing the Frenchman to the Bernabeu as part of a major summer overhaul.

Barcelona, Juventus and PSG have all been linked with Pogba too, but Real Madrid are the number one contender for the player’s signature and considering to make a £130m offer in an attempt to convince Manchester United to sell.

Pogba’s contract at Old Trafford is valid until June 2021, with the 20-time English champions are wielding an option to trigger a one-year extension.
