Real Madrid out of transfer race for Paul Pogba
Real Madrid won’t pay gigantic fees for Paul Pogba.
Real Madrid have decided not to sign Paul Pogba away from Juventus, according to Sky Sports. Los Blancos don’t want to spend the €130 million that would require a deal for the French midfielder and Manchester United appear ready to complete the signing of the Juventus star.
The Italian club wanted to get at least €100 million for the transfer and Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola wanted a big contract for the French midfielder as well.
However, when taking into account add-ons and bonuses related to the success of the player and the club – as well as Raiola’s fee – the total amount United could pay for Pogba’s transfer could reach over £105m (€123m).
That doesn’t include the salary of the player, which could exceed the €10 million/year if he finally decides to leave Juventus and join United this summer.
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has been a long term admirer of Paul Pogba. But with a 3 man midfield, He would have required to bench either Luka Modric or Toni Kroos who are world class midfielders.
Paul Pogba is a really good player but the fees for his services is highly exaggerated. Since his 100 million evaluation by Juventus many are keeping eyes on him and reports suggests that its overrated and Real Madrid are wise to pull out of the transfer race.
