Having already reported that Real Madrid were interested in signing Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, François Gallardo didn't end it there and said that French midfielder Paul Pogba wants to play for Real Madrid next season.

Real Madrid appeared to be after Pogba for a while, but his agent Mino Raiola slammed Florentino Pérez's transfer policy in Marca last month. However, Raiola was spotted in Real Madrid's hotel in Turin, starting the whole controversy about this transfer again.

Juventus will likely ask a huge transfer fee for Pogba, and there are several club interested in the player. Not only PSG but also FC Barcelona want to get their hands on one of the most interesting prospects in European football, something that will only increase the transfer fee. Although Juventus do not want to sell the player, they will likely feel much better too with close to €100 million on their bank. That's how expensive Pogba could be.
