Paul Pogba to Real Madrid is ‘inevitable’

Real Madrid completing the signing of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is inevitable, according to a report in Diario AS.

It outlines reports that United are close to signing Bruno Fernandes from Sporting CP and Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic Savic, which will be funded by the sale of Pogba to Los Blancos.

The France international is said to be keen to complete the deal as soon as possible so that the deal does not become a saga, as his move to United from Juve in 2016 became.

He is said to be unhappy with not being the top earner at Old Trafford following the deal concluded for Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal last year.

Previous reports in Spain claimed Pogba has a strong desire to win the Ballon d’Or and this would be out of his reach whilst still playing at Old Trafford.

The midfielder returned to United in the summer of 2016 from the Bianconeri in a €95m deal, which was then a world record.

Pogba is said to be set to inherit Bale’s €14.5m annual salary with United demanding a fee of €200m, with Madrid’s disastrous pre-season – coupled with sales and injuries – acting as a catalyst for the deal.
