Paul Pogba is actively trying to force Manchester United to sell him this summer and has informed the club that he does not want to participate in pre-season with them.
For their part, United are not keen on selling the Frenchman but the player and Real manager Zinedine Zidane are determined to force the Red Devils hand.
Real are not the only club interested in Pogba, French moneybags Paris Saint Germain are reported to be keeping an eye on the situation and the players former club Juventus, are also said to be keen on signing the 26-year-old.
But it is Real Madrid that Pogba has set his heart on and they are just as keen on signing the playmaker.
It should also be noted that Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has had his ban suspended after an appeal to the court of arbitration for sport which means that he can now negotiate deals on his client’s behalf.
All the signs are there that Pogba will be sold this summer, there is no point in United keeping a player that does not want to be with them, especially a player as moody as Pogba.
