Real Madrid have been one of the most active teams when it comes to transfers this summer. Having already acquired players such as Luka Jovic and Eden Hazard, Los Merengues are doing everything they can to improve the quality of the squad ahead of the 2019-20 season.
However, Zinedine Zidane is not done dealing and he wants to sign another central midfielder. He might have Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, but at the same time, he knows depth is lacking in that position. And the French tactician has reportedly shortlisted two players before deciding on who to sign.
According to a report from AS, they are currently trying to decide between going in for Paul Pogba, of Manchester United, or Christian Eriksen, who plays for Tottenham Hotspur.
The Spanish outlet indicated Zidane rates Pogba over Eriksen and he has already expressed his admiration for Pogba several times in the past. Back in March, Zidane described Pogba as a “complete midfielder”, one that knows both how to attack and how to defend. Eriksen is clearly better suited for an attacking-minded role.
However, Real’s hierarchy would apparently prefer to go for Eriksen, as they believe his arrival would open up the Danish market for them as the Spurs man is by far the Scandinavian country’s greatest football star at the moment.
It remains to be seen which player ends up at Real Madrid. The one thing that’s certain is either player would improve Madrid’s quality substantially.
