Real Madrid have set their sights on their next Galactico and Juventus’ Paul Pogba is the first name on their wish list.
Reports from Marca have explained that the Spanish giants believe that the 21-year-old Frenchman is not only a star on the pitch, but can also fit into the club’s marketing strategy, due to his popularity amongst the younger demographic of football fans.
Pogba’s playing style, his attitude and his hairstyle have given him a head start in terms of his popularity when compared to other players his age. Aside from this, he was the Golden Boy winner of 2013 and the Best Young Player at last summer’s FIFA World Cup.
Florentino Perez and Real Madrid’s scouts have therefore marked Pogba as a suitable candidate to usher in their newest generation of Galacticos. Following Zinedine Zidane over a decade ago, and Cristiano Ronaldo right now, Pogba has all of the necessary characteristics to lead a brand new generation of stars, who will maintain Real Madrid’s unique brand that has proven to be so successful over the years.
It has been speculated that Pogba will become the most expensive French footballer of all time, with his possible transfer fee exceeding the €71 million Real paid Juventus for Zinedine Zidane. The Frenchman has also been offered €4 million and €5 million sponsorship deals by Nike and Adidas if he moves to a bigger club.
Paul Pogba has made 113 appearances for Juventus and has scored 22 goals in all competitions.
