Real Madrid will look to sign Chelsea FC star Eden Hazard and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in the summer, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that Real Madrid are prepared to offer £85m to sign the Belgium international from Chelsea FC in the upcoming transfer window.

The same article states that los Blancos are also ready to step up their interest in Manchester United’s World Cup winner.

According to the same story, Real Madrid are confident that manager Zinedine Zidane can lure Hazard and Pogba to the Spanish capital.

The Sun report adds that Hazard is eager to secure a move to Real Madrid due to his long-held desire to work with Zidane.

The Real Madrid manager is still convinced that Pogba is the right candidate to improve his team’s midfield despite the 26-year-old’s display against FC Barcelona, the report concludes.

Pogba produced a disappointing performance in Manchester United’s 3-0 loss to FC Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Manchester United re-signed Pogba in an £89m deal from Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window.

Pogba has won the Europa League and the League Cup since his club-record move to Old Trafford three seasons ago.

The French star has largely underwhelmed since his return to Old Trafford despite a couple of eye-catching performances.
