Sergio Ramos vetoes the signing of Paul Pogba despite Zidane wanting him
Zinedine Zidane has reportedly prioritized the signing of Paul Pogba. The Real Madrid gaffer has been vocal about his admiration of the Frenchman and he has responded in kind as well. With Manchester United failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, it looks like Paul Pogba will be looking for a new home this summer.
However, club captain Sergio Ramos does not want Real Madrid to sign the World Cup winner. Ramos does not want Pogba in the dressing room as he believes that the Frenchman has a problematic personality. Additionally, Ramos fears that Pogba will want to be paid big bucks to come over and believes that it will upset the team's harmony.
Perez also wants to push for the signing of the more disciplined and consistent Christian Eriksen. If it comes to a battle between the two, the Real Madrid president will opt for the Dane.
