Sergio Ramos believes Manchester United star Paul Pogba would help to bring “balance” to Real Madrid and says that the midfielder could still make the move to the Bernabeu.
Pogba, 26, was heavily linked with a move to the La Liga giants over the summer after emerging as a leading target for Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane.
Although the French World Cup winner indicated his desire to leave the Red Devils, he ended up staying at Old Trafford after the Premier League club refused to budge on their £150million valuation of a player they bought for £89m in 2016.
However, with Madrid expected to renew their interest next summer, captain Ramos has not ruled out linking up with Pogba in the future and believes the midfielder would make a valuable addition to the current squad.
“I think Real Madrid always has the door open for good players such as him,” Ramos told The Express .
“For me, Pogba is one of the great players.
He continued: “I think he brings balance to a team.”
“He has a great offensive influence and he has this amazing physique.”
Madrid boss Zidane reportedly identified Pogba as his top target as he looked to overhaul his squad on the back of a disappointing third-placed finish in the league last season.
However, after spending almost £300m on the likes of Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Ferland Mendy and Eder Militao, the club were reportedly unable to finance a deal to bring him to the Spanish capital.
The Frenchman remained at Old Trafford and has featured in each of United’s opening four games of the new Premier League season.
He is currently absent from Didier Deschamps’ France squad after picking up a knock during the recent draw with Southampton .
Pogba missed Saturday’s 4-1 win over Albania and will also play no part in his country’s Euro 2020 qualifier with Andorra on Tuesday.
