Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez has admitted that the club has chased the likes of Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski and Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba and has lamented the fact that their respective clubs did not allow them to make a transfer.
Lewandowski has long been linked with a move to the Bernabeu in the past, while Pogba is another player who was said to be on the club's radar for a long time, though nothing came out of their interest in either of the players.
Perez has admitted that both the players were targets for them and that they were not able to convince either Bayern or United to sell their stars.
🎙️ Florentino Perez: "There are certain players who don't get sold. We went for Lewandowski for several years but nothing happened. There was no clause and Bayern didn't want to sell. And that's what happened with Pogba." pic.twitter.com/h48vrPk83T— Infinite Madrid (@InfiniteMadrid) September 12, 2019
“There are players who don't get sold. We went for Lewandowski for several years and nothing happened because he has no clause and they [Bayern Munich] won't sell him. There's no way. And that's happened with Pogba. When certain players can be sold, we can go for them," Perez said as per Goal.
Despite not being able to land the above mentioned stars, the Los Blancos were busy in the recently concluded summer transfer window, spend almost €300million on players, including splurging €100m to land long-term target, Eden Hazard from Chelsea.
With Pogba's future still up in the air, it will be interesting to see whether Real make an approach for him next season.
