Madrid's loss against Atletico brings Pogba closer

Real Madrid's heavy loss in friendly derby against Atletico Madrid helped Zidane see where is the problem and Pogba might be the solution

Real Madrid's last game is sure one that Los Blancos fans would try to avoid talking about. Even tough it was a friendly match, the result that was displayed in the screen at full-time came as a big shock to everyone but even more to Real Madrid fans who were excited to see something different that would make them optimist about the new season.

At the other hand, Atletico might have showed that they are still up to the challenge like each year and that even though they have lost big names as Griezmann and Godin and Felipe Luis, they can still compete and send warnings to European giants and maybe there is a new super-star in the making that we should look up for... Joao Felix.

The 19 years old pulled off a remarkable performance, scoring one goal and assisting two others for Diego Costa who managed to score four goals in that match before he got sent off along with Carvajal with a red card during the second half.

We could see that Real Madrid's biggest problems lay in the middle-field especially after the bad performances that Toni Kroos have been showing since couple seasons. The Champions League 13 times winner need a new middle-fielder that can give competition to the German and why not send warnings to the Ballon D'or winner Luka Modric.

To solve that problem, Real Madrid are holding big hopes in signing the French world-class Paul Pogba from Manchester United and even though reports came earlier this summer saying that Los Merengues have pulled out of the deal because of the pricing demands that Manchester United directors came out with to drive off Madrid's efforts, now we could see Florentino Pérez coming with a higher offer that would put The Red Devils in a tough position to refuse especially that the world champion is eager to leave the club at this transfer window.

Reports also came recently claiming that Manchester United have reached an agreement with Sporting for Bruno Fernandes who was spotted crying during his last match with the Portuguese club, tears that could mean that he played his last match with his current club ahead of flying to Manchester to undergo medical tests and sign with the Red Devils.
