Zinedine Zidane is interested in signing the World Cup winner but United do not want to sell him – and their stance is he is not for sale.
Pogba has been vocal about his desire to seek a new challenge away from Old Trafford, although United’s stance this summer is unlikely to change. The Bernabeu club had a risible £27.4m plus James Rodriguez offer for Pogba rejected by United earlier this month.
With Real Madrid having already spent significantly on Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic this summer, an astronomical offer is unlikely to be tabled before the Spanish transfer window shuts on September 2, but Mathias Pogba has warned United his brother’s dream is to win the Champions League.
“Zidane is one of the greats and I think that if the club give him what he wants, he won’t have a problem, but if they don’t give it to him, he’s going to have a hard time because what he wants is not going to happen, because right now it’s a little late,” Mathias said in an interview with El Chiringuito.
“My brother is missing and I think he needs another midfielder. Of course Florentino [Perez] can get him, nothing is impossible in life. I don’t think he’s worth 200 million, but now the football world is like that, Manchester are going to ask for a lot, but not 200.
“It’s a delicate situation but the player has his personal goals, if you have to leave, well, that’s it. If you can’t stay and play where you are, you can stay and you’re done. I can’t assure you that he is going to stay at United.
“We know he wanted to move, but he’s not to blame. He’s waiting. He works hard and we’ll see what happens. In football you never know. Until September 2 everything can happen. My brother’s dream is to win the Champions League.”
