A report in Spanish publication AS suggests that Real Madrid will spend €400million (£356m) this summer as Zinedine Zidane looks to rebuild his squad ahead of next season.

The Spanish giants have already signed the likes Luka Jovic, Eder Militao and Rodrygo Goesif and recently announced the signing of Eden Hazard to add to the list.

It is suggested that Madrid will go for one more central midfielder this summer and will try to get one of either Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba or Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen.

The report also claims that Los Blancos might be forced to go for Eriksen over Pogba due to their trouble with meeting the financial fair play rules.

AS report that Pogba will likely cost between €160m (£142m) and €180m (£160m), around €80m more than Eriksen.

It is further suggested that Zidane prefers the French international to the Dane but given the Man Utd midfielder’s asking price, he might decide to settle for Eriksen.

Spurs Web Opinion

While Pogba is likely to be the more expensive option compared to Eriksen, the one thing we know about Daniel Levy is that he won’t allow any club to hold Spurs for ransom if they want to sing any of their players.

We believe the Dane is likely to set Madrid back at least €100 million which will represent a great deal for Spurs given that the Dane only has one more year left on his contract.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Woodward might be willing, however to accept Bale plus cash in exchange for Pogba.
    Bale would fit at Man U. but would destroy the progress made at Tottenham.
    Bale likely can contribute for another year or two.
