Paul Pogba has two new stars at Manchester United in Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek, both of whom, like Pogba, were linked to Real Madrid in 2019. So far this season, the French middleman has made three Premier League appearances, averaging 2.3 dribbles per game, 2.3 draws per game, and 1.7 fights per game, according to WhoScored.com.
After Real Madrid wisely chose not to give in to Manchester United’s huge offer for Pogba, it seems as if it is unlikely for the player to join forces with Zinedine Zidane, who was the one who forced Florentino Perez to sign the field before last season.
As a result of the ongoing financial crisis, Los Blancos are never going to sign any player this summer, and even the pre-agreed contract for van de Beek is declining.
It seems, according to AS, that Zinedine Zidane has not given up on bringing Paul Pogba to Real Madrid and managing the best medium in the French national team. AS writes that Zidane still wants to manage Pogba one day, even though Fede Valverde has emerged as a star player. Pogba will always be expensive, but he is also one of the world’s best. At Real Madrid with Zidane as his coach, Pogba would be able to reach his full potential. How many players have achieved their potential in Manchester United since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson? You can count that number on just one hand, unfortunately.
This deal is never going to happen, but I don’t blame Zidane if he still wants to work with a player as technically talented, tactically intelligent, and as hard-working as Pogba.
