Real Reason Pogba Didn't Join Real Madrid Revealed?

After Paul Pogba failed to get his dream move from Manchester United to Spanish giants Real Madrid in the latest transfer window, a new report has emerged suggesting the real reason for the deal falling through.

Why Mourinho Told Man Utd Not To Sign Van Dijk

The 26-year-old was said to be desperate for a switch to Los Blancos ahead of the 2019/20 season, but United made it clear he was not for sale.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said early on in the recent window that the Frenchman would not be leaving, despite Zinedine Zidane and Real's strong interest in the central midfielder.

The 13-time Uefa Champions League winners also seemingly did not have the financial means to afford Pogba, especially after making five first-team signings, although there is a new claim that suggests there could have been a third party at play.

According to The Star, sportswear powerhouse adidas intervened as they considered it more commercially beneficial to them that Pogba stayed at the Red Devils.

They reportedly acted as peacemakers between Pogba, his agent Mino Raiola and United after tensions ran high when the player and his representative perhaps gave the press too many stories to work with.

The Frenchman admitted it would be difficult to turn down a move to the LaLiga giants, while Raiola talked up his client's possible exit from Premier League.

The sports brand was believed to be influential in the midfielder's 2016 move to the Red Devils from Juventus, and the player is in his third year of a 10-year personal endorsement with adidas, while they also sponsor United's playing and training kits.

Do you believe Pogba will eventually get his desired move to Real? Let us know in the comments section below.
