Zidane’s Pogba desires delay move for Eriksen
One of Real Madrid’s top priorities this summer is to incorporate another midfielder or two. With Toni Kroos having renewed his contract, Casemiro and Luka Modric are likewise thought to stick around for next season.
The Frenchman is wanted by Zinedine Zidane and the player himself is keen to make the move happen, but his Manchester United exit won’t be simple.
Signing Eriksen is more feasible. The Dane will be a key player for Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday in the Champions League final but with just one year remaining on his contract, Daniel Levy will be compelled to arrange this mid year except if he needs the player to leave for nothing one year from now.
But Zidane is leaning towards Pogba, rather than Eriksen, which is delaying Madrid from opening discussions, as he’s as yet not so much persuaded by the Spurs star.
The economic difference between the two is huge. Pogba arrived at Old Trafford for over 100 million euros, so he won’t leave for anything under 140 million euros, while Eriksen could leave London for around 60 million euros.
