Real Madrid are no longer interested in signing Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba, Stretty News understands.
According to Spanish outlet Don Balon, Pogba likes the idea of Zinedine Zidane replacing Jose Mourinho in the United hot seat, with such an appointment set to persuade the World Cup-winner to remain at Old Trafford.
Their questionable report also notes that Pogba would be ‘happy’ to remain at United should Zidane end up becoming the manager, something that would deal a huge blow to Los Blancos’ alleged hopes of signing the 25-year-old.
However, contrary to reports, Stretty News understands Real Madrid are no longer interested in signing Pogba.
Time and time again over the summer this Spanish outlet has proven to be unreliable with their continuous ‘Neymar to United’ reports and more, in a sheer attempt to blind the media with click-bait.
Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain would currently appear to be more likely destinations for Pogba next year, though United are not stating that the player is definitely up for sale.
United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is wary of weakening the club’s negotiation stance and is believed to have previously warned Mourinho about striking back at the Frenchman’s public displays of belittling the manager.
