La Liga giants Real Madrid were desperately looking for a world-class midfielder in their team but failed to do so despite all their attempts. Manchester United star Pogba was one of their key targets in the summer transfer window.
However, the Premier League heavyweights had reportedly quoted a sum of €200 million for their star midfielder which Real Madrid could not match and consequently Pogba remained at Madrid.
The Real Madrid management was thus forced to shift their attention towards other midfield options like Christian Eriksen and Ajax’s Donny Van de Beek. However, none of the deals completed within the transfer deadline.
As the season has progressed, Pogba’s links with Real Madrid gradually died down since Madrid were focusing on other options. However, fresh reports from Spanish media outlet Don Balon, state that United are willing to sell Pogba to Real Madrid and have told them the amount they are expecting for Pogba.
The report claims that Manchester United have asked for as much as €160 million for the Frenchman from Real Madrid. In addition, the deal needs to be completed in the first week of January transfer window to give enough time to the Red Devils to find a replacement for Pogba.
