Real Madrid are increasingly confident they could sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United this summer, sources at the Bernabeu have told ESPN FC.
Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is keen to land Pogba, although club president Florentino Perez has needed convincing after spending over €300 million on new players already this summer.
Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola both publicly pressed for a move away from United earlier this summer, although more recently, the World Cup winner's attitude has been praised by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during the team's preseason tour of Asia.
Perez told Zidane during a meeting in Montreal last week that it would be "difficult" to sign Pogba this summer given that United do not want to sell. Zidane then asked Perez and director general Jose Angel Sanchez to make another effort and now Madrid sources have said that, although United are holding out for €180m, there is a feeling they can find an agreement.
