Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has hinted Real Madrid could move for Manchester United target Paul Pogba.

Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has dropped a hint suggesting Real Madrid could move for Juventus star Paul Pogba in the summer.

The Spanish giants have proven themselves capable of going after the most expensive transfer deals with the acquisitions of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, the two most expensive deals in the history of football.

Ancelotti has now revealed Los Blancos could be interested in signing the Frenchman which would make it even more difficult than it already is, for United to lure him back to Old Trafford.

“Pogba is a very good player. He has a very good future. He is at a big club and is doing a very good job. He is a complete midfielder. Get him? Why not? This is one of the best young midfielders alongside Verratti and Isco,” Ancelotti is quoted by Marca.

The reason so many clubs are reportedly interested in scrapping away over Pogba’s future is because he’s been in very good form for the Old Lady in Serie A this season; six goals and five assists from 23 appearances.

Real Madrid as a club, business and a sporting industry would also be very appealing to a 20-year-old still making his way in the game.

Real Madrid stand a great chance of winning La Liga this season and barring some sort of freak miracle, they will be in the Champions League in the foreseeable future which is another advantage they hold over United.

Juventus have been very stubborn over Pogba’s future, suggesting they are under no pressure to sell even if a side comes in with a huge offer for the midfielder.

Real Madrid are one of the sides who have the resources and capability to pull a deal off regardless of Juve’s official stance if Ancelotti demands the Frenchman as his priority summer signing on the back of a successful season.
