Real Madrid have invested heavily in strengthening their squad this summer and only Paul Pogba is missing for their new season project.

Zinedine Zidane has urged his employer to sign the midfielder, but AS once again report it will be difficult to get him out of Manchester United, who have set a minimum asking price of €170m.

After the end of last season, the World Cup winner and his agent, Mino Raiola came up with a strategy to take the player away from Old Trafford. Zidane was also convinced his compatriot will play for Real Madrid next season.

Los Blancos’ efforts to sign the France international have become one of the ‘soap operas’ of the transfer window, but it’s likely to end soon since the Premier League transfer window to sign players closes on August 8th.

Should the La Liga giants fail to land the 26-year-old before the aforementioned date, then AS believe it will be impossible for them to sign Pogba because the Red Devils cannot bring in a replacement for him.

AS explains Real Madrid have told Pogba to stay silent because upsetting Manchester United will only complicate their efforts in signing him.

In addition to this, Raiola has also been advised ‘not to tighten the rope’ for the transfer.

This should come as positive news for those United fans who would like to see Pogba continue at Old Trafford next season.
