2 reasons why Real Madrid are stalling over Pogba move
- United are refusing to sell Pogba despite his clear intention to leave.
- Real Madrid are unlikely to push for the Frenchman until they sell some of the players.
- The La Liga giants reportedly need to recoup around €200 million before making a move.
Goal's Real Madrid expert Alberto Pinero sheds some light on why the La Liga giants are yet to make a move for Paul Pogba despite his intention to leave United after spending three years at Old Trafford.
First of all, Real are unable to make any movements to land the Frenchman before entering negotiations with United. However, the Red Devils are refusing to let the Frenchman leave. United's firm stance has recently been confirmed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Madrid, meanwhile, are not said to be in the rush to secure Pogba's signature because they have to raise money first. The La Liga giants have already spent €300 million on the likes Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Eder Militao and Rodrygo Goes.
The World Cup winner is expected to cost between €150 and €180 million and that's why Zinedine Zidane would be hopeful to offload James Rodriguez, Keylor Navas and United-linked Gareth Bale. The trio are believed to be the main candidates to command the highest transfer fees.
Summing it all up, before Real Madrid start selling big and the Red Devils accept the inevitable departure of the 26-year-old, there could be no talks on Pogba's potential transfer to Santiago Bernabeu.
