Real Madrid emerge as the favourites to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba on a free transfer, according to a report.
Mino Raiola is reportedly pushing for his client Paul Pogba to join Real Madrid on a free transfer.
Pogba’s contract at Manchester United is due to expire next June, and the France international is yet to decide whether to commit his future to the 20-time English champions.
The 28-year-old has been in strong form this season, contributing seven assists in six Premier League appearances, but a recent report claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to the club over the summer had left the World Cup winner feeling overshadowed.
As it stands, Pogba will be able to enter into pre-contract discussions with foreign clubs in January, and a number of clubs, including Juventus, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, have been credited with an interest.
According to El Nacional, Raiola is pushing for the midfielder to make the move to the Bernabeu, with Barcelona unable to afford his substantial wages.
Pogba previously left Man United on a free transfer in 2012 to join Juventus, where he spent four seasons, winning four Serie A titles and two Coppa Italias during a successful spell.
