Real Madrid opinion: Should Madrid sign Pogba?
Real Madrid are set to go all out for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, according to Marca. The French starlet has been strongly linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu with Zinedine Zidane at the helm. The report states that Zidane is desperate for his compatriot to play under his tutelage.
The 26-year-old endured an eventful season at Old Trafford as he was ostracized by the former manager Jose Mourinho at the start. Since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Pogba cut a revamped figure as he consistently played a pivotal role for United’s series of victories.
The former Juventus star, in fact, added an impressive 22-goal tally in all competitions. However, the Red Devils couldn’t finish the season in their desired way, losing out on their Champions League spot for the next season.
Should Madrid consider a move for Pogba?
Elsewhere, the Los Blancos have had one of their worst seasons in history, losing 12 matches in La Liga and most of the defeats came against bottom tabled teams. Furthermore, they also got knocked out of the Champions League by Ajax in the round of 16, the competition in which they had their reign for a long while.
The exit of talisman Cristiano Ronaldo was touted as the key reason for their slump but some big names like Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Asensio and Isco also failed to work in unison.
Pogba looks to be Zidane’s trump card as the French gaffer aims to restore his side to winning ways. Both, Modric and Toni Kroos have already entered their 30s and can’t be considered as feasible options for the club’s long-term future. Moreover, the iconic duo weren’t at their best, as they showed rustiness at times throughout the campaign.

The United starlet might have been lackadaisical in the final third of the competition, yet his contribution in the last year’s World Cup will not be taken for granted.
The Los Blancos have already confirmed new signings of Luka Jovic and Eden Hazard and it looks like the Spaniards want to make a statement in La Liga next season. Bringing in Pogba to Spain’s capital would make them an unstoppable force.
