Man United should sell Paul Pogba to Real Madrid as al it will be beneficial for all parties involved says ESPN Pundit Alejandro Moreno.
The 26-year-old has been linked with a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu for some time now after admitting his desire to play under Zinedine Zidane at some point in his career.

In an interview with ESPN, Pogba said in March:” At the moment I’m happy in Manchester. I play. There’s a new coach.
“Real Madrid is one of the biggest clubs in the world. I’ve always said it is a dream club for every player.”
The record UCL champs are expected to make multiple ‘Galactico’ signing in the summer with Pogba being named as one of the most prominent ones.

The French International has been under heavy scrutiny for his recent performances in United’s colours so much so that he had to face abuse from a section of United fans in the Final Premier League game of the season.
Although Ed Woodward is adamant about keeping Pogba at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not too confident and selling Pogba could free up funds for United to sign more players.
Which, according to Moreno, is the right move.
“He has made it very clear, even though it is just little messages here and there, he has had ample opportunity to say ‘no, Manchester United is where I am at’, but instead he says’ there could be a possibility of another place that seems very interesting and it is a club of my dreams’,” Moreno told ESPN FC.
“Well, fine then, go to Real Madrid I say, I think they are in a position now where they know that they need talent and talented players that are either in the prime of their career or coming into their prime.
“There is no doubt that Paul Pogba is a world-class talent, but you need him to perform consistently.
“For whatever reason, and you can point the finger in all sorts of different directions to Mourinho and other people, but it just hasn’t really worked out for him at Manchester United for whatever reason.
“And so maybe a change of scenery is a positive move for him, and as for Real Madrid it does allow you to get your hands on a world-class talent.”
