Gossip: Real’s Pogba project, Neymar ‘considering Man Utd’

REAL INTENSIFY POGBA FUNDRAISING EFFORT Real Madrid are leaving it late to launch what Marca are calling ‘Operation 200’. The mission? Raise enough cash to tempt Manchester United into selling Paul Pogba. The wishes of real and Pogba are clear – neither party has made any attempt to hide them – but United are being rather more stubborn than either the player or the Spanish club perhaps anticipated. The last report suggested the Red Devils might be willing to sell but only for around £180million. Having already spent more than anyone else in Europe this summer, Florentino Perez needs to generate some funds before moving for the player Zinedine Zidane apparently covets the most. To raise the €200million (£180million) needed to sway United, Real will look to shift Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, Dani Ceballas, Isco and Marco Asensio. Which is what they’ve been doing for most of the summer anyway, certainly in Bale and Rodriguez’s case, without any success. Atletico Madrid might take James, but Bale seems quite happy to stay at Real and play golf everyday while pocketing his huge salary. Ceballos is tempting Arsenal and Spurs but seems most likely to make a loan move while interest in the other pair at the prices Real are looking for is sparse.   NEYMAR WILLING TO CONSIDER UNITED As it stands, Pogba is stuck where he is. And the same appears to go for Neymar. The Brazil star is desperate to quit PSG who are prepared to sell the world’s most expensive player but only should they receive a suitable offer. Neymar’s problem is that the only club who could probably afford him is the one he’s trying to get away from. Barcelona don’t fall into that category no matter how badly Neymar wants to return to Catalonia. Having spluffed the budget on Antoine Griezmann, Barca can only offer a van-load of surplus players in part-exchange or, according to Sport, a loan deal with an obligation to buy in a year. So Neymar is looking at his other options, which appear thin on the ground. Bayern Munich are mentioned by Mundo Deportivo as are Manchester United. But if Neymar was unhappy after only a few months at PSG, imagine how quickly he’d get bored at Old Trafford playing in the Europa League. And Neymar’s circus is the last thing United need.   AND THE REST Newcastle will give Steve Bruce more than £90m to spend this summer despite the new boss being the 11th choice for the job… The Magpies are firm favourites to sign Hoffenheim striker Joelinton… Liverpool are highly unlikely to sell or loan out Simon Mignolet… Romelu Lukaku remains intent on quitting Man Utd for Inter… Fernando Llorente has an offer from Fiorentina… Granit Xhaka is set to become the new Arsenal captain… the Gunners may have Premier League competition for Kieran Tierney… Burnley want £12m for Tom Heaton, which is three times the amount Aston Villa have offered… Fulham midfielder Jean Michael Seri is set to join Galatasaray on loan with a permanent option.
