La Liga giants leading race to sign £300,000-a-week Man United star

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has reportedly promised coach Zinedine Zidane that he’ll try to deliver the transfer of Red Devils playmaker Paul Pogba.

It stays to be seen if the Los Blancos definitely can achieve this ambitious potential signing, but they’re certainly going to try and could use some of their unwanted footballers as bait in a swap deal. The report also states Madrid could try a similar approach to sign an ideal midfield partner for Paul in the form of Chelsea star N’Golo Kante.

The duo should know each other well from playing together for the Les Bleus and could be just the midfield partnership Real need. Real Madrid have relied on the likes of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Casemiro for some time now, though Modric is now ageing and cannot go on forever, while Casemiro’s form has taken a dip.

Kante could be an ideal replacement for the Brazilian in defensive midfield, while Paul could very much play the Modric role with his skill and creativity. Red Devils and Chelsea won’t want to be losing star footballers, but the lure of a big club like Real Madrid has often proven too hard to turn down.

Real Madrid have a fantastic consequence in La Liga this campaign as they are leading the table. Los Blancos signed several footballers during the summer transfer window like Luka Jovic from Eintracht, Eden Hazard from Chelsea, Rodrygo Goes from Santos, Eder Militao from Porto, Ferland Mendy from Lyon and Alphonse Areola from PSG.
