Manchester United Transfer News: Real Madrid spot Napoli midfielder as a cheaper alternative to Paul Pogba amidst summer squad overhaul.
Paul Pogba is speculated with a move away from Manchester United this summer, especially after he gave a controversial statement regarding his future with the Red Devils. The French International is reportedly ready to join Real Madrid this summer.
In recent advancements, according to a report by the AS, Real Madrid have spotted Fabian Ruiz as a cheaper alternative to Paul Pogba this summer.
Since, Real Madrid are finding it difficult to hire the services of Pogba from Manchester United, as the English giants are reluctant to sell the French International this summer.
Additionally, Real Madrid have massively spent on mega-deals to bolster their squad amidst squad overhaul this summer, and Pogba will be even more costly to the Spanish giants.
Even though, the demanding price of the Spanish International is set at a high price of around €70-80 million by Napoli, but it is far less than what Pogba will cost to Zinedine Zidane.
Thus, the 23-year-old seems as a viable for Los Blancos, as Carlo Ancelotti has massively developed the young midfielder ever since he moved to the Italian club.
Although, despite his potential, Ruiz lacks the experience Pogba has achieved in years. Real Madrid are targeting to earn highest prices next season, and Pogba seems as a necessity buy considering the aspirations of Los Merengues.
Nevertheless, Real Madrid have not taken any further step in chase since being denied by Manchester United to hire the services of the 26-year-old midfielder. Thus, the future course of action by Zidane is yet to be seen.
