- The United midfielder has long been linked with the Santiago Bernabeu switch.
- The La Liga giants are believed to have abandoned their hopes of landing the Frenchman.
- Nevertheless, his brother wants Paul to join Real and believes money is not a problem for the Spanish giants.
Usually, it's Mathias Pogba who's invited to have a chat on El Chiringuito TV show in Spain as he represents Spanish fourth-tier side Lorca FC. Now, Florentin has attended the show to speak about his youngest brother.
“At the moment, there’s no talk about it, but I’ve always said that I want my brother to sign for Real Madrid. I want it, but at the moment, we’re [them in the studio] just chatting about it. And this summer, it’ll be the same, because it’s always like this,” he said, as cited by Sport Witness.
“In the transfer window, it’s always talk, like ‘WOW!’. Either you talk about it for a day, or for two months. How long have you been talking about it? Since 2016. We’re in 2020. And it’ll be talked about again.”
The United midfielder is said to be keen on an Old Trafford exit in the summer but the Red Devils' asking price of €100m could be the stumbling block to his move to either Madrid or Juventus (Fabrizio Romano).
What's more, Real are believed to have told Pogba's agent Mino Raiola that they have no plans to sign his client at the end of the season (Marca).
Florentin, however, believes money is not the problem for the La Liga giants.
“It’s not a money problem, because Madrid can put the money. I don’t know how much [Paul] is worth. It’s all politics and football,” he added. “It started when Ronaldo signed at Madrid for €94m, and after that… [mimics explosion]
“There are youngsters who move for €80-90m that haven’t won a trophy, and remember that when Ronaldo signed for Madrid, he had won trophies with Manchester United.”
Pogba has missed the majority of the season due to an ankle injury but could return to the first-team training with United already this week, as per Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
