Real Madrid Want Paul Pogba to Headline a New Generation of Galactico Signings
Reports in Spain and France claim Real Madrid will pay whatever it takes to bring Paul Pogba to Spain in the summer.
The Champions League holders want the Frenchman to be the headline signing in a third generation of galacticos.
Daily newspapers in both countries, such as Marca and L’Equipe, claim that Pogba, 21, is keen to leave Italy in order to play for a bigger club so that he can cash in on big-money sponsorship deals on offer from both Nike and Adidas. The sportswear giants are believed to be offering Pogba around £3 million per year in sponsorship if he moves to one of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Despite Real’s determination, they will meet opposition from arch rivals Barcelona in their attempts to sign Juventus’ powerhouse midfielder, with Manchester United, Manchester City and PSG also keeping tabs on the situation.
It is thought that Real Madrid Castilla coach Zinedine Zidane is pushing hard for Madrid to break the bank for Pogba.
