Zinedine Zidane continues his transfer policy and his next reported target is United’s Paul Pogba as per the Daily Mirror. Moreover, Blancos are ready to offload Gareth Bale, 30 next month, in return for the 26-year-old World Cup winner.
The Welshman has become something of a liability at Santiago and Hazard’s arrival will likely make things even worse for the Welsh international.
The history of misunderstanding goes well back – Zizou has even allegedly planned to get rid of the Welsh striker last summer but Florentino Perez vetoed his decision.
Bale’s huge salary is a headache for Blancos, who don’t get an equal return from the unmotivated player. According to some sources, the 29-year-old is making £600,000-a-week before taxes.
