With Zinedine Zidane returning to Real Madrid the assumption has, probably correctly, been made that there’ll be a lot of money to spend in the summer transfer window.
With Madrid struggling since the Frenchman left, in order for him to return there must have been some promises from Florentino Perez of serious squad investment this summer.
This has all led to the Spanish media, and indeed others around the world, pushing forward endless lists of potential targets.
Paul Pogba has been one of the players most mentioned. When the midfielder moved to Manchester United from Juventus, there had been many reports of Real Madrid interest.
The media local to Los Blancos then went about explaining why they hadn’t wanted Pogba anyway, but of course only after it became clear he’d be joining Manchester United.
Now that stance has largely been forgotten and Pogba is likely to be the subject of further rumours.
Speaking to Spanish radio, in quotes picked up by Mundo Deportivo, Adnan Januzaj has been asked about his former Manchester United youth teammate.
The Real Sociedad player said: “We have known each other since we were very young, we have done everything together. I went to his house and he to mine. He asks me how Spain is and he likes to watch my matches. I also see his.”
That’s bound to be picked up as some kind of sign.
