We give you the specifics about Paul Pogba’s major tryout today, he will play against FC Barcelona hoping that Real Madrid is watching.

Even though we know that Eden Hazard is the player who will certainly sign his new contract for Real Madrid during the summer, other players such as Paul Pogba are still doing their best to convince Real Madrid that signing them is in the club’s best interest.

Because you may not realize that Zinedine Zidane is not the man who needs convincing, the one who cuts the checks at the club is Florentino Perez and the club president has taken a more recent transfer policy that allows Real Madrid to not spend crazy amounts of money for players.

Even though Los Blancos did think about spending big for the best players in the world, Paris Saint-Germain’s move for Neymar completely changed the transfer market since the summer of 2017.

Florentino Perez knows that if he didn’t stop the avalanche of demands from other clubs or all the players who wanted to come to the club, he would become part of the problem that is a transfer market uncontrollable inflation.

The only problem with signing some of the players on Zinedine Zidane’s list of demands for next season, is that Florentino Perez will always refuse to go crazy on some names from such list.

Agent Mino Raiola presents himself as another one of the major problems that Real Madrid could have in their attempt to sign Pogba, the Italian agent has always been a tough negotiator for the club because his main focus has always been about money and he has always made sure that his players remain oriented in that manner.

We can’t forget that Paul Pogba was the most expensive player in the world for a brief period of time, the French international even rejected Real Madrid and Barcelona because his agent wasn’t going to get his payday for the transfer.

But the situation has shifted and suddenly the player wants to play for Los Blancos without any restrictions, Diario AS reports that Real Madrid is still hesitant on actually moving a finger with Paul Pogba because they want to wait and see how he manages his relationship with the agent.

There is no reason for Florentino Perez to deal with Raiola when Pogba is the one who has to do it, the player finally understands that prestige must always be above any sum of money and he recognizes that playing for Real Madrid could mean that he should lower his salary in order to fulfill his dream.

The only problem for Pogba will be to convince the agent.


As a perfect way to prove himself to president Florentino Perez, Paul Pogba has the unique opportunity to actually eliminate FC Barcelona in today’s Champions League series that begins at Old Trafford.

This might be a situation that reminds people of Frenkie de Jong’s performance against Real Madrid, only Pogba will have to play in order to get himself that coveted offer and De Jong already had a contract with the Catalan club.

Paul Pogba remains as one of the few great players that Manchester United has to compete against the Catalan club, which means that most of the attacking responsibility will fall on his shoulders for the two matches that are about to start in a few hours.

This is the perfect way for Paul Pogba to finally convince Real Madrid that they need to sign him as the best possible replacement for veterans Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, the Frenchman is actually a combination between both of these players and he would be coming to Real Madrid with many years ahead of him.

The world will be watching from every corner, all the attention will be on Old Trafford for this spectacular match between Manchester United and FC Barcelona.
