Real Madrid will forget about signing Manchester United's Paul Pogba and re-focus their efforts on Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen, as they fear a deal for the Frenchman would be too expensive.
Both players have been heavily linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu as part of Zinedine Zidane's squad overhaul. In recent weeks, Pogba has dominated the headlines, but the Red Devils remain desperate to keep the World Cup winner.
United would likely demand a huge figure to part ways with Pogba, and Marca claim that Real are simply not willing to meet such demands. In addition, while club officials like the 26-year-old, but feel he would not be a good fit for their squad.
Marca cite concerns about his personality, his salary demands and his agents, whilst Real may also struggle to find a way to fit him into the team. One of either Luka Modric, Casemiro or Toni Kroos would need to be dropped, and Los Blancos feel as though such a dilemma is not worth the incredibly high price tag.
