Real Madrid, Barcelona set to battle for Pogba


Manchester United star Paul Pogba is wanted by Real Madrid. And a new report suggests Los Blancos’ interest in the World Cup winner has left former admirers Barcelona baffled.

Manchester United star Pogba has emerged as a priority Real Madrid transfer target ahead of the summer window, with the La Liga giants deeming him good enough despite his mixed campaign.

The France international has struggled at times this season, previously under Jose Mourinho and currently under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

That has not deterred Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, however, with the Frenchman’s interest in the Manchester United star dating back years.

And ESPN claim many at Barcelona are confused by Real’s interest in the 26-year-old.

Last summer, the Catalan giants were eyeing Pogba themselves.

But they were unwilling to push the boat out for the Frenchman, with their low offer of £45million plus Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina immediately rejected.
