Paul Pogba could still leave Manchester United for Real Madrid this summer, according to his brother.

The France midfielder was expected to leave Old Trafford for Real Madrid this summer, but the Spanish club do not appear to be prepared to accept United’s asking price, reported to be £180million.

Mundo Deportivo reported on Thursday that Zinedine Zidane still wants to land Pogba ‘as soon as possible’ but Real Madrid’s hierarchy believe a deal for the midfielder is ‘not worth’ the money.

However, Mathias Pogba – who now plays for Spanish fourth division side CD Manchego – claims his brother is still “waiting” to see if he can move to La Liga this summer.

“Zidane is one of the greats and I think that if the club give him what he wants, he won’t have a problem, but if they don’t give it to him, he’s going to have a hard time because what he wants is not going to happen, because right now it’s a little late,” Mathias told El Chiringuito.

“My brother is missing and I think he needs another midfielder. Of course Florentino [Perez] can get him, nothing is impossible in life.

“I don’t think he’s worth 200 million, but now the football world is like that, Manchester are going to ask for a lot, but not 200.

“It’s a delicate situation but the player has his personal goals, if you have to leave, well, that’s it.

“If you can’t stay and play where you are, you can stay and you’re done. I can’t assure you that he is going to stay at United.

“We know he wanted to move, but he’s not to blame. He’s waiting. He works hard and we’ll see what happens.

“In football you never know. Until September 2 everything can happen. My brother’s dream is to win the Champions League.”
