Real Madrid in pole position to sign €60m-rated Man United star

Real Madrid are growing increasingly confident of snapping up Paul Pogba on a free transfer in next summer’s transfer window. However, Man United could put the 28-year-old midfielder up for sale in the winter if the footballer has not agreed to a new contract by the turn of the year.

France international is currently enjoying the best phase of his second spell with the Red Devils, having arguably been their best footballer in 2021. Pogba has kick-started the 2021/22 campaign in style as well, having provided seven assists in only four matches so far.

Indeed, Paul was on song in Man United’s latest match, as he provided two assists in a 4-1 victory over Newcastle United. However, with Paul now in the final year of his contract, Man United are scrambling to reach an agreement over a renewal with their prized possession.

The situation, though, has alerted Real Madrid over the prospect of a Bosman move. Los Blancos hold a long-standing interest in the Frenchman, having also been in his pursuit back in 2016 when he chose to join the Red Devils instead. The interest has not waned a lot since, although they have admired him from afar up until now.

However, with the prospect of a free transfer looming, Real Madrid have leapt into action. Indeed, the likes of Dani Ceballos and Isco are expected to leave Los Blancos sooner or later means signing the World Cup winner on a Bosman deal could be a masterstroke.
