Knowing that Real Madrid don't want to pay close to €100 million for their target Paul Pogba, Juventus want to get Álvaro Morata and Mateo Kovacic in the deal, something that could decrease the fee significantly. This report from El Chiringuito means that there is still a lot of work to be done between both clubs in order to complete the deal for Pogba.

Real Madrid and Juventus were going to discuss the Álvaro Morata and Paul Pogba deals today, but the meeting between Marotta and Florentino Perez was ultimately postponed.

Kovacic has not had an easy season for Madrid but he's still a very young player with a lot of potential, one who could eventually replace Luka Modric in the future, so Real Madrid should not sell him.

Morata has a €35 million buyback clause on his contract with Juventus, and Madrid are planning to pay it and then sell the player for a much bigger fee in order to use that money on Pogba. Juve want to keep the player and could offer around €25 million to erase that clause in their contract with the striker and lower their price on Pogba.
