It may not be looking as likely as it was some months ago, but the fact that Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid will be looking to replace veteran midfielder Luka Modric sometime soon continues to make it look like the Los Blancos might want to have a raid on Manchester United.

The future of United midfielder Paul Pogba remains quite unclear and up in the air with his current contract set to expire in the summer, while he has also continued to look adamant about not wanting to pen a new deal at Old Trafford. Most of the club's fans believe that Pogba is one of their most important players and that they need him to stay around for a longer period, beyond this summer. But there are some others who feel that he should be allowed to leave if he wants to.

Pogba is said to be assessing his options and does not want to rush into making any decision right now, which has made him become one of the prospective hot cakes of the summer transfer window. United may have to prepare for life after the France international star and have been reported to have been eyeing a couple of midfielder options to replace the World Cup winner. Should Pogba leave this summer, he would undoubtedly need to be replaced by United and that would be a lot of work for them to do.

Current United manager Ralf Ragnick has insisted that even though the club do not have to beg any player to sign a new contract, he would love to see Pogba remain at the club. Real Madrid are one of the most likely destinations for Pogba if he leaves United, alongside French Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain and Italian Serie A giants Juventus. However, he could still change his mind and choose to sign a new deal.
