Real Madrid will still try to sign Paul Pogba this summer, club sources told Managing Madrid. Los Blancos were reportedly out of the race for the midfielder after Juventus asked for at least €100 million in order to let him go, but Madrid still think that he is a player who can add plenty of depth to the squad and their incoming FIFA ban means that they will be able to spend big money this summer and then save some during the next two transfer windows.

Either way, it will not be easy for Madrid to get a deal done considering that Mino Raiola and Pogba both want to get a good deal as well, meaning that Madrid would need to spend around €130 million in order to get the player Zidane wants.

If Pogba ends up signing for Real Madrid, either James or Isco will most likely leave the club as they will not get the minutes the want with the Frenchman on the squad.

Likelihood: 5/10
