Paul Pogba is desperate for £ 130 million move to Real Madrid … a master class against Barcelona in the Nou Camp would convince the Spanish giants to make his dream come true
- Pogba & # 39; s game in Camp Nou can make the difference in his Real Madrid movement
- Zinedine Zidane did not hold back when she spoke publicly about wanting Pogba
- Real President Florentino Perez is not convinced, but can force his hand
Paul Pogba's performance at Camp Nou may be the difference between Manchester United making the semi-final of the Champions League or not. It could also be the difference between Real Madrid going all-in this summer for the 26-year-old or looking somewhere else for midfield reinforcements.
There is no doubt that Pogba wants the Madrid movement. He started to learn Spanish several seasons ago with Antoine Griezmann, a French teammate. His flirtation during the last international break was intentional. This is not just a trick to get a better contract. If the summer soap ends with that and no more he will not complain, but that is not his priority.
There is no doubt that Pogba now has someone in Santiago Bernabeu who wants him to be with Real Madrid. Zinedine Zidane also did not hold back when he spoke publicly about the player.

Real President Florentino Perez is still not convinced, but can force his hand
Real Madrid, however, is divided on whether or not the World Cup winner is to be pursued, because for all Zidane in favor, President Florentino Perez remains unconvinced.
Zidane has dominated the signing sessions since he took the helm last month, on condition that he dictates how the team forms this summer, but Perez will still have an important voice and he feels that he is currently Real Madrid members and supporters on his side. he argues that Pogba is not worth breaking the club's transfer record.
The current transfer record of Real Madrid in 2013 amounts to € 100 million for Gareth Bale. They would have to pay closer to € 150 million to get Pogba from United. They should also make him their best merit and pay his agent Mina Raiola.

A big performance on Tuesday evening and the pressure will be on Perez to do it all. Another dragging show and Perez hand will be strengthened.
There were fewer than glowing reviews for Pogba after the first leg of last week. A & # 39; where was Pogba? & # 39; head was used in Diario Sport in Barcelona, but sentiment was also felt in Madrid.
The President of Madrid opposed Zidane's request to sign Pogba earlier. Madrid considered him in 2016 when they learned that the player wanted to leave Juventus, but as soon as Manchester United joined the bidding and it became clear that it would cost more than £ 100 million to sign him, his agent's breakthrough would be record breaking , and his wages would abandon those of his new teammates, Perez decided to ignore Zidane's request.
The price has since risen and the poor relationship with Raiola, who played a role, remains.
It goes back to 2015 when Pogba was linked to Barcelona; The then Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, relinquished a move and Pogba & # 39; s agent was quoted in L & # 39; Equipe as follows: & # 39; Madrid buys players like some people buy bath towels and then throw them aside. We are not interested in such a & # 39; n club. & # 39;
Real & # 39; s icy relationship with Mino Raiola, the agent of Pogba, is a possible stumbling block
Now it's different. Zidane has much more power than he had three years ago and Perez is ready to overlook his own preferences if he thinks he has no choice. But if Pogba does not illuminate the Camp Nou, he will encourage Zidane to consider other options.
Tottenham & # 39; s Christian Eriksen would be the Real Madrid alternative to Pogba. Spurs does not want their star-midfielder to turn their heads while the season is still being played, so the first messages from the club are designed to withstand Madrid's progress.
However, Eriksen has only one year left from his contract and Perez believes that the two clubs will be able to do business at the end of the season.
It will be an or / or a bid. Both players do not arrive in the same summer. Zidane has been told that he can design the new team, but within a realistic budget.
Last Friday Real Madrid confirmed that they had taken out loans in the United States to finance their € 575 million stadium renovation.

The club revealed that from 2023 to 2049 they will have to pay back € 29.5 million per year for construction work expected to commence this summer and take four years to complete.
They are satisfied that the repayment plan will not paralyze in the transfer market, but it does not rule out a summer of madness like the one in 2009 where the club saw Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Karim Benzema in the same window. Eden Hazard will be the first major signing to take place and a large midfield recruit to follow.
If Madrid chases Pogba this summer, the club may have an unexpected ally in Gareth Bale's agent Stellar Group.
They signed Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez in February and the 24-year-old Spanish international would be well placed to replace Pogba with Old Trafford.
