Paul Pogba could be set for a summer move to Real Madrid after Manchester United reportedly dropped their asking price to as little as £53million .
The Frenchman has come under heavy questioning this season, and has recently lost his place in the United starting eleven despite the team’s struggles on the pitch.
Reports now indicate , United are ready to release the midfielder and will accept a vastly reduced fee for the star.
Madrid have been linked with Pogba for some time, with the player heavily tipped to make a move to the Bernabeu prior to the coronavirus pandemic.
At present the World Cup winner currently finds himself on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s bench, with Bruno Fernandes and summer signing Donny van de Beek preferred.
Since, links with the Spanish giants have diminished somewhat, though it is understood that manager Zinedine Zidane remains a huge admirer.
Zidane is said to have asked the Madrid board for both Eden Hazard and Pogba upon his return to the dug-out, and has already had half of these wishes granted.
Madrid however have a long list of transfer targets, with the club understood to be preparing all energy and resources into signing Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain next summer.
