Paul Pogba will join either Real Madrid or FC Barcelona, according to L'Equipe. The midfielder wants to play in the Spanish Liga BBVA and would not be keen on making a return to the Barclays Premier League or sign for PSG and play in the French Ligue 1. Furthermore, both clubs have made a subtle, non-formal €10 million/year contract offer to Pogba, with the French "more inclined" to join Real Madrid, per that same report.

L'Equipe believes that Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are both interested in signing the midfielder, but there's a problem. Both Real and FC Barcelona would not get a single Euro over Pogba's image rights, as they belong to his former adviser Tanazefti. This could be a big problem for Madrid, who at least want to get 50% of every player's image rights.

Real Madrid and FC Barcelona could spend €80 million on Pogba, although the French could only make his debut for Barcelona next January due to their FIFA ban. This could also play a big part on the transfer saga.
