Hello and welcome to the Premier League transfer news and rumours of the day! Here are the top stories of the surrounding the Premiership!

Real can sign Pogba

Real Madrid TV presenter Phil Kitromilides has claimed that Zidane is a huge fan of Paul Pogba and the Galacticos could benefit a lot in the PR aspect if they sign a big name like the United player.

“Paul Pogba is a player that Zinedine Zidane has publicly said he likes, and he doesn’t normally go into how much he likes players when he’s asked about them, so a lot of people read quite a bit into his comments.
“He is a player who, certainly from a PR perspective, would go down well with a section of fans who are asking for blockbuster signings after what has been a very disappointing season for Real Madrid.”

The Galacticos endured a difficult campaign where they failed to win a single trophy. As a result, Kitromilides thinks that the fans want major signings. He also added that he doesn’t know where Pogba could fit at the Bernabeu as the Galacticos have a plethora of talents in that position.

However, Madrid can make a big and bold statement in the transfer market by splashing the cash on the French World Cup winner, according to him.

“They finished third in LaLiga, 19 points behind Barcelona, and went out of the Champions League and Copa del Rey. They haven’t won anything and fans are demanding signings.
“With Pogba, I don’t know where he might fit in on the pitch, because Real Madrid also have quite a lot of good midfielders.
“But in terms of that PR exercise, he would be a big, big name and would probably cost a lot of money as well. It might be something Real Madrid are looking for in terms of getting those headlines out: ‘We are back, we are spending money again’.”
