Man Utd schedule London meeting with Zinedine Zidane agent to discuss Paul Pogba transfer


Real Madrid want to sign Manchester United
midfielder Paul Pogba but there are tensions between the clubs. Manchester United have organised a meeting
with Zinedine Zidane’s agent in the next few days to discuss the future of Paul Pogba,
according to reports in France. Real Madrid tried to sign the midfielder in
the summer but United warded off Los Blancos with their high valuation. Pogba piqued the interest of Real after admitting
his eagerness for a “new challenge” at the beginning of last summer. The World Cup winner’s agent Mino Raiola
tried to engineer a move away from Old Trafford by publicly putting pressure on the club but
failed in his attempts. Pogba has previously said it would be a “dream”
to play under his countryman Zidane at the Bernabeu and eyebrows were raised when Express
Sport released pictures featuring the two men talking together at a beach in Dubai during
the October international break. Zidane claimed it was a chance meeting and
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was not bothered by the encounter but it did not
aid a potential deal which could be struck between the two clubs. As a result, Zidane’s agent Alain Migliaccio
is primed to hold talks with senior Untied officials in the coming days, according to
French media outlet Le10sport. The football representative, who also controls
the careers of Franck Ribery, Samir Nasri and Eric Cantona, is jetting into London soon. And once he lands in the English capital,
the agent hopes to woo United officials and smooth the path for Real to swoop in for Pogba. Solskjaer recently reassured United fans that
Pogba “is not getting sold in January”, however, before the midfielder returned to
action against Watford on the weekend. And United were surprisingly served a boost
with regards to Pogba’s future by the controversial Raiola last week. The Dutch super-agent spoke warmly of Pogba’s
return to Old Trafford for £89million in August 2016, and suggested he could stay at
his boyhood club for years to come. “I think that Paul really went home,”
Raiola told the Telegraph. “Paul could have gone elsewhere. But he really chose with his heart, to go
home. Paul is a very, very nice person. “For example, he’s not able to be angry
at Ole because Ole treated him so good when Ole was an older player and Paul was a younger
player. “The respect and the love that he received
from Ole means he cannot get angry at Ole. “Paul wants to be successful and happy and
wants to win prizes and he would love to do that with Manchester United.” Speaking of the summer just gone, he added:
“There was big interest from Real Madrid and Manchester [United] didn’t let him go. “We didn’t make a fuss about it and he didn’t
make a fuss about it because I work in accordance with the player. “You know other players can bring things
to extreme but Paul doesn’t like that. So you work differently. “There was an interest from Real Madrid but
they [United] didn’t let him go, and I’m sorry because I think that Paul being French then
