Pogba is finally not coming to Madrid

in #sportstalklast year

The Premier League window is closed and Paul Pogba remains a Manchester United player. Real Madrid and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side couldn't reach any form of agreement and the Red Devils didn't sign a replacement for the talismanic midfielder.

Zinedine Zidane is now aware that he won't have the player he wanted to build his second Real Madrid project around. The possibility of the French midfielder arriving at Madrid now are practically zero.

in the final days of the transfer window, United did ignite interest in Christian Eriksen, which might have made a Pogba deal more possible. The Dane was said to prefer a move to Madrid, however, and that interest ended. The other option was Bruno Fernandes but he didn't arrive either.

Zidane was resolute about his number one transfer target

During the entire summer, Zidane fought for Pogba and never once strayed from his number one target.He didn't flinch when Madrid planned for alternatives in Eriksen and Van de Beek either.
