Transfer News: Real Madrid Eye Juventus Midfielder As Pogba, Eriksen Alternative

Real Madrid keep adding names to their list of possible summer reinforcements and they don’t see to stop doing that in the near future. Los Blancos know they are going through times of changes and every single day they embrace more that idea.

With Eden Hazard’s move to Santiago Bernabeu seemingly imminent, Zinedine Zidane and the club’s directive are decided to collect more and more talent around the Belgian in order to boost the team’s level. They are looking to reinforce the attack this summer more than anything and a creative midfielder can be the perfect way to start building the best possible team for Zizou.

In recent weeks reports indicated Real Madrid were weighing up the transfers of Paul Pogba and Christian Eriksen, with the two Premier League stars under the radar of the Spanish side for a couple of months, but with several obstacles have prevented the Spanish side to finish a deal with any of them. This is why the White House has turned its eyes to another talented midfielder that can easily fit in the team and improve their game.

Real Madrid have targeted Juventus star Miralem Pjanic as an alternative choice if they’re unable to sign Manchester United's Paul Pogba or Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen this summer. According to AS, Zidane approved a move for Pjanic this offseason; the Bosnian player is also appraised by the team’s general director José Ángel Sánchez and a move to Madrid looks very possible for him now.

Juventus, who are currently on the seek for a new manager, are said to be willing to let the Bosnian international go, as the money collected from his departure would help them sign the proper pieces they need to fill Pjanic's void; names like Chelsea’s N’Golo Kanté and Tanguy Ndombélé of Lyon have been linked with a move to Turin.

The Italian side would ask a fee of 80 to 100 million euros for Pjanic. However, the Spanish side is unlikely to offer more than 70 million euros for the Bostian, who is also on the wishlist of PSG and Manchester United.
