Sottil

Real Madrid is reportedly keen on securing the signing of French duo Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe in a pre-contract agreement in January as per the report in Spanish outlet Deportes Cuatro

Los Blancos are looking to strengthen their squad with world-class talents in the upcoming transfer window, to regain their identity as the world’s best. 

Following the consecutive Champions League triumphs under Zinedine Zidane. The Spanish giants have struggled to showcase consistency on the pitch. And are looking to bring in players who can help them to reach that goal as soon as possible. 

According to the report, Real Madrid has reignited their interest in signing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba. Former manager Zidane desperately wanted to bring in the fellow countryman at the Spanish capital a couple of seasons back. But the club’s hierarchy could not manage to get a deal over the line.

The report further claims that the 28-year-old’s signature could help Real Madrid to bring Paris Saint-Germain sensation Kylian Mbappe for free next summer. Both French players’ contracts will expire at the end of this season and both are willing to part ways with their respective clubs. 

Real Madrid lining up Pogba and Mbappe deals in January:

Signing Pogba and Mbappe for free would be a great business for Real Madrid in January. After enduring a tough financial situation during this pandemic, Los Blancos have struggled to purchase world-class talents during the transfer window. 

So, signing two players of this calibre for free will certainly make the Santiago Bernabeu faithful very happy. With Luka Modric approaching the final few seasons of his career in the Spanish capital, bringing in a new experienced midfielder was an absolute necessity for Los Blancos. 

Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti’s side has had its ups and downs in this early part of the season. Los Blancos are currently sitting second in the league with 17 points in eight games. They are also sitting second in the Champions League group with three points in two games.
