Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba continues to be heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid after he failed to make a switch to the Santiago Bernabéu last summer.
On April 8th, we brought an update from Marca that Pogba’s priority is to join the La Liga side in the upcoming transfer window.
It was also explained Real Madrid are not so keen on the France international because of the emergence of Federico Valverde.
Zinedine Zidane has long been an admirer of his compatriot and another Spanish newspaper, AS, now claims the 27-year-old remains the manager’s ‘great wish’.
The Real Madrid boss considers Pogba as the ‘type of player around whom a squad can be built’.
If the Madrid based club decide against fulfilling Zidane’s wish by signing Pogba, then the manager has identified Eduardo Camavinga as a backup target to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s man.
Real Madrid view the Rennes teenager as one for the future and if Pogba doesn’t arrive, Zidane wants his employer to make a small effort by signing Camavinga. The youngster, however, is ‘not strictly a Plan B’, states AS.
The 17-year-old will be a cheaper alternative to Pogba, but the former may struggle to immediately make his way into Real Madrid’s first team, if he ends up joining them.
