Real Madrid insider concedes Pogba deal: Man Utd cash power too great

Manchester United’s world record deal for Paul Pogba is even too rich for Florentino Perez.

United could complete the signing of the Juventus midfielder in the next 48 hours. A fee in the region of €120 million has been mentioned – a price deemed crazy even by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Anton Meana, of Cadena Ser, revealed: “I asked Real Madrid what was happening and was told that for them the deal was done at Manchester United.

“They tried to do it for (Zinedine) Zidane. But they would not ever put 120 million euros towards the deal.”

Pogba is expected to be in Manchester on Thursday for a United medical.
