Paul Pogba to Real Madrid
Saga from last summer continues. Zidane is keen on bringing Frenchman to Madrid and he is ready to pay whatever Manchester United asks for. We all know that Pogba is a player that can be a one-man show and the one who decides the matches, but on the other hand, he can be the most static figure on the field. It remains to be seen how will this story end and will it be money well spent.
Pervis Estupinan to Barcelona
