The English club seeks a replacement for Pogba and negotiating its transfer, according to L’Equipe
The possible signing of Paul Pogba for Real Madrid writes a new chapter. The Manchester United, who refused to negotiate his transfer and hung the poster of “non-transferable”, begins to loosen before the decision of the player to leave the team. For that reason, he would have asked for time to find a substitute, according to L’Equipe.
Pogba, 26, would have confessed to his environment that his desire is to sign for Real Madrid, according to Jugones de La Sexta, and that returning to Juventus would be his plan B. The Frenchman was close to reaching the Bernabeu three seasons ago , but a maneuver by his agent Mino Raiola took him to United to satisfy his demands by paying him a multimillion-dollar commission of 27 million euros.
The Raiola factor
It is precisely the Italian agent one of the great concerns of white executives. If United puts a price and close an agreement, then they will have to save the demands of the peculiar player agent, a guy who manages his resources with skill and makes the product more expensive whenever he can. So they believe in Real Madrid, convinced that the interest of Juventus is a leak of Raiola to get the maximum benefit.
United looks for a substitute for Pogba and manages three names. One is curiously Christian Eriksen, who is also on Florentino Pérez’s agenda. It would be his plan B in the event that United refused to sell or put a prohibitive price on the French international. Other names that would handle would be those of Teielemans and James Madison, according to Mirror.
