Real Madrid are reportedly back in the running to sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United.

As per a report in AS (via Managing Madrid), the Spanish giants are looking to snap up the Frenchman on a free transfer next summer.

Real Madrid have been linked with the Manchester United star for a long time. However, they have never managed to get a deal over the line.

AS claim Real Madrid have no intentions of signing the midfielder in the January transfer window and will only offer him a pre-contract. However, they are ready to meet his €15 million-a-season wage demands in order to lure him to the Bernabeu.

Los Blancos do not wish to get into a tussle with Manchester United and want to have a clear run at the midfielder.

Pogba has expressed his desire to play for the La Liga side a couple of times before. Speaking to the media this time last year, he said:

"Yes, all footballers would like to play for Real Madrid. Maybe it is a dream. It is a dream for me, why not one day? As I have said, I am at Manchester United and I like my club."

Paul Ince urges Paul Pogba to leave Manchester United for Real Madrid

Paul Ince has not been a big fan of Paul Pogba since his arrival at Manchester United. He even urged the midfielder to leave Old Trafford last year. However, the 28-year-old has stayed put despite having just a year left on his current deal.

Here's what Ince said about Pogba:

"I know he has had an injury, and he might be trying to bring him on a little later on. But I think it is time to move on. He has come out in the last two weeks and said he wants to join Real Madrid. I think his performances, since he has been here, have been inconsistent. Paul Pogba is a world-class player, and when he moved to Old Trafford, I thought [it would be] great. But all he has done is been a problem. The fans have gone against him and now Bruno Fernandes has come in and shown what you need to do to be a Manchester United player."

Paul Pogba can agree on a pre-contract with any club in January and join them for free in the summer.
