Real Madrid want Premier League over Manchester United ace Paul Pogba, according to report in the Spanish media.

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is being favoured by Real Madrid hierarchy over the French midfielder as a top target for the European Champions.

The report in Marca says Eriksen is emerging as a preferred target for Real Madrid over Manchester United's Paul Pogba, this could mean Pogba is missing out on his 'dream' to move to play for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is a huge fan of Pogba but Real Madrid has been in the race to sign Eriksen for some time and also Eden Hazard as they aim to boost their creativity after a poor campaign this season.

Pogba was not at his best in the defeat against Barcelona during the Champions League clash that ended 1-0 at the Old Trafford.

Another twist to the signing of Pogba is the fact that Real Madrid president is not a huge fan of the 26-year-old midfielder and is believed to prefer a move for Eriksen.

Real Madrid is expected to embark on a massive clear out in the summer, with Gareth Bale leading the exodus.
