Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, is reportedly regretting his decision not to force a move to Real Madrid this summer.
Pogba admitted before the club’s pre-season training tour in Australia that he would like to seek a new challenge elsewhere.
His comments fueled an interest from Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane, who is said to be a fan of the former Juventus star’s, though the Spanish giants did not make any official bid for him.
But United insisted he was not for sale, before slamming £150 million price tag on him, which they knew Real could not afford, due to Financial Fair Play (FFP), after spending over $300 million on transfers in the summer.
It now looks like the Frenchman will stay at Old Trafford, at least for one more season.
However, according to AS, Pogba is now regretting not forcing a move to the 13-time Champions League winners, with four days left before the window closes in Europe.
The report suggested that his failure to push for the move ended the Santiago Bernabeu side’s hopes of signing him.
Zidane has allegedly not given up on signing his compatriot, despite United not wanting to sell their priced asset.
