Paul Pogba would be 'delighted' with a transfer to Real Madrid amid Manchester United's fears that the midfielder will leave the club for free next summer, according to reports.
Apprehension is growing around Old Trafford that Pogba could once again leave on a free transfer like in 2012 when he ditched his academy club to join Juventus.
The Red Devils have reportedly put a surprise price tag on their no. 6 in order to receive a fee for their record signing if discussions over a new deal continue to prove fruitless.
In recent weeks, as Pogba attempts to help lead his nation to Euro 2020 glory, Paris Saint-Germain have been labelled as a potential next destination, but it's old admirers Real Madrid who've come up once again.
Paul Pogba would reportedly be 'delighted' with a transfer to Real Madrid
Sunday's edition of Spanish paper AS via Sport Witness reports ‘sources very close’ to the France international have told the outlet that he'd be ‘delighted’ if he could sign the last major contract of his career with the Spanish giants.
Loose-lipped agent Mino Raiola claimed in December that "it was over" for Pogba at United but the 28-year-old's performances and attitude from then on encouraged United fans that he may well stay in Manchester and commit his future.
Zinedine Zidane's presence at the Santiago Bernabeu was always believed to be a pull for Pogba, although his recent departure is reportedly not fatal to the notion of a switch.

Should United sell Pogba this summer to avoid missing out on a transfer fee? Let us know your thoughts below.
AS also state that the star's salary wouldn’t be a problem, especially given his commercial status as a global brand magnet.
The outlet notes that Pogba's standing would generate more advertising income than fellow in-demand Frenchmen Kylian Mbappe, who's himself been frequently linked with a move to Madrid.
With reports emerging in recent days that PSG are hoping to bring the World Cup winner to Paris, RMC Sport ran a story this week claiming Raiola travelled to the French city of Nice to meet with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
Pogba, a Parisian native, then stated in a press conference ahead of France's 1-1 draw against Hungary yesterday: "I have one year left on my contract, everyone knows that.
"There have been no concrete proposals for extensions. I'm still in Manchester.
"After the season there was the vacation, so I didn't sit down with the manager and coach. I'm focused on the Euros.”
He then directly addressed talk of a homecoming, saying: "I have an agent that deals with all that. I don’t have Nasser's number.
“My only thought, now, is the Euros. I’m focused. I’ve got more experience than before. I’m focused on the present, the Euros."
It's thought that Pogba will wait until the tournament finishes to resume contract discussions and could find himself in an awkward position with supporters if he spends next term playing down his contract.
