Real Madrid have set their sights on signing Kylian Mbappé in 2021 and for this to happen, the forward must not renew his contract at Paris Saint-Germain, claims AS.

Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland are the other objectives for Los Blancos in the upcoming window.

It’s clear the La Liga side cannot sign both due to the Coronavirus crisis.

Haaland is a necessity due to a lack of goals, but it’s difficult to take the Norwegian away from Dortmund.

The midfielder’s case, on the other hand is different. He still remains an object of desire for Zinedine Zidane and the La Liga side will have the third chance to sign the France international in the summer.

Pogba, at 27, is a ready made footballer and a team can be built around him, at least that’s what Zidane believes.

Therefore, the newspaper states it’s the right time [next window] for the Spanish giants to sign him. However, Real Madrid’s leaders don’t share the view of their manager. 

His contract at Old Trafford runs down in 2021, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have an option to further extend it by a year.

Despite that, it’s claimed foundations are laid for Pogba to leave Manchester United. AS states the former Juventus star would ‘prioritise’ a move to Real Madrid, but for him to do that, he needs an offer from the club.
