But Raiola is aware of the obstacles Real face in buying Pogba. The Spanish giants have already spent close to £200 million on Eden Hazard, Ferland Mendy and Luka Jovic and will have to unload players to raise funds for the United mid-fielder.
United have already made it clear that if they are to release the Frenchman, it will not be below £160 million.
As for Real Madrid, Gareth Bale, Isco, Keylor Navas and James Rodriguez are all believed to be up for sale. Rodriguez could possibly bring in some substantial cash for Los Blancos considering that clubs like Napoli and Atletico Madrid are eyeing the 27-year old Colombian. Now that his Bayern Munich loan spell is nearing its close, clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal are beginning to show interest
Meanwhile, out at the Molineux, the hot rumour is that the Wolves are gearing up to sign ex-Chelsea and Spanish international striker, Diego Costa, from Atletico Madrid.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly agreed to personal terms with Diego Costa ahead of striking a deal with Atletico Madrid to bring the striker back to the Premier League.

They even failed to come to a conclusion on other bonuses and clauses within the deal as well.
