After all the drama, it seems like Real Madrid gave up on bringing in the French superstar in their new line up. The alleged record-breaking transfer fee has probably been too much for the Champions League winners.
According to Sky Sports, the Spanish giants accepted defeat in the race for Paul Pogba, making way for Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
The French midfielder has been the biggest subject in this summer’s transfer talks, as he was targeted by many European clubs. His price is alleged to be way over the €100m Madrid paid for Gareth Bale.
And as the Red Devils step up their pursuit of the 23-year-old superstar, the British newspapers report that Real’s president Florentino Perez has admitted that he is too expensive for them.
Instead, Real Madrid will focus on Valencia’s Andre Gomes, who has shown some great performances for Portugal as they have won the Euro 2016. If you want to bet on Los Blancos’s next matches, visit the best sportsbook.
