Real Madrid should not make a big investment to sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United this summer.

That’s the opinion of journalist Julio Maldonado Maldini, who doesn’t believe the Frenchman would work at the Bernabeu if he was to make the switch.

This summer looks likely to be another one filled with talk of Pogba leaving Manchester United, with the Frenchman entering the final year of his contract at Old Trafford.

His agent, Mino Raiola, has already publicly stated that his client doesn’t want to sign a new deal at the club, and they will have to deal with his future come the summer.

The likelihood is that Manchester United will be forced into a sale to avoid losing him on a free transfer the following year and, as is always the case, Real Madrid have been named as a potential destination.

Maldonado, though, doesn’t believe they should be looking at the 27-year-old if he’s available.

“I have doubts that he can succeed there,” he told Marca.

“Right now, Zidane wants to mix it up a lot; it makes less sense for Pogba in that scheme.

“Besides, he’s not going to come for free. If Real Madrid have to make a big investment, they shouldn’t invest in him.”
