With Real Madrid now said to have ‘reactivated’ their interest in Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, the Spanish media is back on commenting on the story repeatedly.
It was first AS who claimed that Florentino Perez could afford the Frenchman’s arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu, even though the club president wouldn’t enter any auctions for the signing.
Now it’s time for outlet Cuatro to say a little more about it. They claim that Pogba’s signing would be very important for Real Madrid, since that would help his national teammate Kylian Mbappé choose the La Liga giants as well.
Both players are set to become free agents next summer, as Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain haven’t convinced them to sign new contracts yet. At Madrid, they could join Karim Benzema, another star from Les Bleus.
So Cuatro writes that Pogba’s wish will be ‘key’ in all this. It’s said Real Madrid have liked him for a long time, and now that he ‘fits the budget’, there’d be no reason for the club to reject that chance.
Pogba and Mbappé could sign pre-contracts from the 1st of January, and that’s when Florentino Perez should start working on those targets.
