- Pogba has been linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid for almost two years.
- Ex-Madrid man McManaman believes the La Liga giants 'have gone cold' on the Frenchman.
- The 47-year-old insists Zidane's side would rather sign Tottenham's Christian Eriksen instead.
Speaking to HorseRacing.net about the Frenchman's future, the ex-Liverpool and Madrid man said: "What Pogba has shown in England, I know Real Madrid have gone cold on him but I know that Zinedine Zidane likes him, however I don't think that signing him is a necessity now for Madrid.
"Firstly, he hasn't really played this season and secondly there's a load of baggage around him which Real Madrid probably don't need at this minute in time. Real Madrid have to do some in-house clearing themselves.'
"Eriksen on the other hand has played in England for a number of years, he's going to be available on a free contract at the end of the season, so you're getting a readymade bargain if that makes sense. If you can bring him in now for a small fee then that makes absolute perfect sense."
Pogba has been linked with a January move away from Old Trafford despite spending most of the 2019/20 campaign on the sidelines.
However, the Frenchman's notorious agent Mino Raiola has recently claimed that the 26-year-old is not looking to leave the club.
