Paul Pogba has accepted a move to Real Madrid, according to François Gallardo. Paco Buyo confirmed Gallardo's report, saying that Florentino Pérez spoke with the French midfielder after Juventus' 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabéu.

There are several clubs like PSG and FC Barcelona involved in Pogba's future right now, so there could be a great fight for signing the star midfielder away from Juventus. However, if Pogba has indeed accepted a move to Real Madrid, Los Blancos will only need to worry about making an offer appealing enough for Juventus.

Pogba will likely leave the Italian club this summer, no matter what they have accomplished this season. He's been rumored to be on his way out of the club for the whole season and there are many clubs who could offer him a lot of money. Karim Benzema and Raphaël Varane have been speaking to the player and trying to convince him about joining Real Madrid.

Take this report with a grain of salt though. While Real Madrid's interest in Pogba is for real, it will not be this easy to get this move done.
