Paul Pogba is the latest big name to have found himself being linked with a move in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The Frenchman, who joined United in 2016 for a mammoth £89m move, is said to have developed a frosty relation with manager Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils’ record signing hasn’t quite fulfilled the expectations he was supposed to at Old Trafford. Performances have been wayward for the former Juventus player all season.

The 25-year-old was earlier dropped by Jose from the starting line-up, and there were reports of bust-ups between the two mega personalities.

Mourinho is believed to have had enough of Pogba, and according to a report in Spanish outlet Don Balon, the latter could be shipped to Real, but only if Cristiano Ronaldo comes to United.

The report adds that the Mancunian club is set to offer Real £66m and the Frenchman in exchange for Ronaldo.

Pogba is said to be a chief transfer target of the Champions League holders. They are also said to be monitoring the player’s situation with the Red Devils, for whom the midfielder has played 32 matches and scored 5 goals this season.

However, it is unlikely that Real will accept such an offer from the English giants. They do not want to let CR7 depart, as they feel that the Portuguese has many more years to give at the Bernabeu.

Moreover, after signing Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window, Jose had claimed that he will not be signing a forward because of the plethora of options he already has at his disposal.

Besides Real, French champions Paris Saint-Germain are also said have made contact with Pogba’s agent, and are eying a sensational move to lure the player back to his homeland.
