Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is reportedly still interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba before the European transfer window closes.
The French midfielder has been linked with a move to the Spanish capital throughout the summer after talking of his desire for ‘a new challenge’ at the end of last season, but no offer has yet been forthcoming from Los Blancos.
However, the Daily Mirror now reports that Zidane is considering making a late move for the 26-year-old, who he sees as potentially being vital to Madrid winning the league title for the first time since 2017.
United are believed to want £180m for Pogba, which the Spanish giants may deem too high after spending in excess of £300m already this summer on the likes of Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic and Eder Militao.
The report also suggests that any deal for the former Juventus midfielder will hinge on Madrid’s continued pursuit of Neymar, for whom the club feel a deal may be too complicated to get done before next week’s deadline.
