Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has informed coach Zinedine Zidane that it will be ‘almost impossible’ to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.
Marca report that Perez has resigned himself to the fact that Pogba will remain with the Red Devils in 2019/20 campaign – regardless of the player’s wishes.
The Spaniard held a meeting with Zidane and Real’s general director Jose Angel Sanchez at a Mont hotel in early July in which the trio discussed how the La Liga side would conduct themselves for the remainder of the summer transfer window.
During the conference, Perez revealed that United are adamant that they will not part company with Pogba and, as a result, any pursuit of the Frenchman would be futile.
Nevertheless, the former Juve man remains at the top of Zidane’s recruitment wish-list as he and the squad look to silence their doubters after a dire showing last term.
