Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is clearly on Real Madrid’s radar this summer and Los Blancos will do their best to complete a deal for the Frenchman. However, a report from MARCA published this Wednesday indicates that United want €200 million for the transfer of Pogba, which doesn’t seem very likely at the moment given that price.

Pogba himself and his agent Mino Raiola have publicly said that the player wants to leave Manchester United. Still, that has not changed United’s desire to keep the midfielder around, which means that Real Madrid could possibly need to take a look at other transfer targets like Christian Eriksen, Van de Beek or Fabian Ruiz, who have also been rumored to be in Madrid’s transfer list.

Los Blancos could potentially spend close to €120 million to sign Pogba away from Manchester United if they manage to sell players like James Rodriguez, Mariano or Bale, but they will certainly not pay €200 million. The next few weeks will be crucial for Pogba’s future.
