Real Madrid are convinced Paul Pogba will snub a return to Juventus
for a move to Bernabeu and they’re set to dump James Rodriguez to fund
his £150million transfer

Real Madrid are convinced Paul Pogba only has eyes for them this summer despite his former club
Juventus being linked to the France international.

Pogba
wants to play for compatriot Zinedine Zidane and sample a new league,
not return to Serie A where he spent four years from 2012 to 2016.

That’s the view of the Madrid board who want to test
Manchester United ’s resolve with a concrete bid before the end of this month.

Their
capacity to make that bid depends on them making further sales and with
them still making no progress in their efforts to sell Gareth Bale,
moving James Rodriguez to Napoli for €40m looks like being their best
chance of doing that.

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti wants to work
with Rodriguez again after their successful time at Real Madrid. It has
even been suggested that the Italian club would take the famous No 10
shirt out of retirement if Rodriguez signs.

Disagreements over
payment methods currently separate the two clubs with Real Madrid
wanting one payment up front for the Colombian so they can commit to
paying a sizeable first instalment in any Pogba deal this summer.

Pogba
has already admitted he wants a new challenge this summer and his agent
Mino Raiola said last week: ‘Everyone within the club from the manager
to the owner knows Paul’s wishes.
Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We are in the process of that.’

Madrid
believe, despite briefing to the contrary, that United are already
making plans to cover Pogba’s departure if Real Madrid come close to
reaching their £150m valuation of the player.

Rodriguez’ switch
to Napoli and the sale of Lucas Vazquez – who is wanted by Arsenal coach
Unai Emery – could give them the resources to make a meaningful bid
before the end of this month.
