Paul Pogba Transfer: Juventus or Real Madrid

Real Madrid had tried to sign Paul Pogba this summer as manager Zinedine Zidane was interested in him. However, the move failed to materialize due to two reasons – United’s high asking price of €180million and the lack of interest from Madrid President Florentino Perez.

But according to reports in Italy, Manchester United have 'begun to realize' that Pogba wants to leave during the January transfer window. The Red Devils are aware his price will drop the longer his contract runs - and they could be forced to sell with Real Madrid and Juventus waiting in the wings. Los Blancos are all set to return to the market for Pogba as Zidane is yet to give up on his interest. While Juventus – Pogba’s former club – could also table a “lucrative” offer for him.
