Paul Pogba could reportedly remain at Manchester United despite interest from Real Madrid and elsewhere.
The Frenchman has been central to arguably the summer’s biggest transfer saga and there has now been yet another twist.
United have insisted from the start they would not part with a player they believe to be crucial to their plans of revolution.
However, Pogba’s desire to play for Madrid has meant the links haven’t stopped with some believing he could force his way out.
The Red Devils’ fanbase don’t need to panic just yet though with the midfielder suffering a blow to his dreams.
According to the Daily Mail, AS report that Real want either Paul or Christian Eriksen to complete their summer revolution and the latter would arrive for considerably cheaper, keeping them within their budget.
The Dane has just a year left in his contract with Tottenham Hotspur meaning it shouldn’t take much to sign him.
Pogba meanwhile could cost around £130m which would take Madrid’s spending over their Financial Fair Play limits after a busy summer.
Before the Spanish side signed Chelsea’s Eden Hazard there was still the possibility of the academy product leaving but that doesn’t necessarily remain the case.
