Zinedine Zidane is on a collision course with the Real Madrid hierarchy over a move for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

A report in https://www.espn.co.uk/football/soccer-transfers/story/4005734/zidane-wants-man-uniteds-pogbareal-madrid-have-other-ideas-sources highlights how club president Florentino Perez and senior officials are not keen on a move for the Frenchman – whose valuation they view as excessive – and would prefer to pursue other midfield targets.

The emergence of Fede Valverde in Madrid’s side is said to be further dissuading the club, who would prefer a move for one of Christian Eriksen, Fabian Ruiz or Donny van de Beek – three other midfield options.

The central midfielder has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid with his compatriot Zidane said to be a big admirer of his ability.

The French international’s contract at Old Trafford expires in June 2021 and with less than two years remaining, it is now entering a critical stage.

Pogba could leave for free that summer or his transfer valuation could be significantly reduced next summer if a new agreement has still not been reached.
