Paul Pogba is Real Madrid‘s primary target this summer and Los Blancos are eager to include Gareth Bale in a deal to sign the Frenchman from Manchester United.
Zinedine Zidane has made clear that his compatriot would be ideal for his team’s midfield, but the Red Devils are not willing to negotiate his transfer.
Pogba‘s agent, Mino Raiola, has twice travelled to Manchester to communicate his client’s intention to depart England, while Madrid‘s directors have also tried to reach the Premier League club’s board who have refuse to enter into talks.
The 2018 World Cup winner is expected to join his teammates in their first pre-season training session next Friday, when he will hand in a transfer request.
Manchester United didn’t manage to secure Champions League qualification and winning the Premier League will be their primary objective for next season.
