Real Madrid's Paul Pogba and André Gomes dilemma

Paul Pogba surprised us yesterday with an incredible image on Instagram in which he appeared all dressed in white, with the accompanying statement: "All in white". A nod and a wink to Real Madrid as large as his imposing physique.

Pogba will sign for whoever his agent tells him

The midfielder, currently at Juventus, will sign for whoever his boss-agent, Mino Raiola, says he will. Raiola has always guided Pogba's career and back in the day took him out of the hole he was in at Old Trafford, where nobody wanted him, and took him to Turin, where he got his smile and self-esteem back. 

Pogba feels indebted to Raiola, and it'll difficult to rip up the agreement he already has with Mourinho to return to Manchester. But as the Gálacticos showed, the best in the world go where they want to. As happened with Zidane, Ronaldo and Beckham, who all went exactly where they wanted: Real Madrid. 

Pogba has a serious price tag

The problem for Real Madrid is the enormous price Juventus are demanding for Pogba, something that isn't the case with Madrid's plan B. André Gomes would cost just half the amount being demanded for Pogba, with Valencia asking for 65 million, with performance related bonuses included. He's even younger than the French player and at 22, his dream is to play in the Bernabéu in the small Portuguese delegation of European Champions, alongside Cristiano and Pepe, not forgetting Coentrao. André Gomes has a huge amount of quality and talent. He'd be a great wager for the future...
