Real Madrid fans “have been waiting” for their club to pursue deals for Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba, claims Christian Karambeu.
The Frenchman, who won the World Cup as well as a Champions League title with Los Blancos, insists both his compatriots are highly sought after in Spain.
Pogba was heavily linked with a switch to the Bernabeu last summer before Manchester United kept hold of their record signing.
But Mino Raiola’s last outburst has cast huge doubt over the 27-year-old’s future at Old Trafford.
Madrid and Juventus are thought to be leading the chase for his signautre.
Florentino Perez has a proven appetite for adding world class names to his Madrid squad.
Pogba appears readily available while Mbappe is in the midst of talks over a new PSG deal.
But Karambeu is adamant that both Frenchman are wanted in Madrid.
“It’s a dream but we have to wait,” he told Stats Perform News .
“The Madrid fans have been waiting for Kylian for a year or two. He hasn’t come yet. It’s the same thing for Paul Pogba.
“Today, Kylian has to decide his objectives and his plans, if he wants to go to Real Madrid or stay at Paris.”
Pogba’s future desires are believed to have been well and truly laid out by Raiola however.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has attempted to steer clear of speculation and urged the midfielder to do his talking on the pitch.
But Raiola has urged the Red Devils to sell Pogba in January.
He told Tuttosport: “He has to change teams, he has to change the air.
“He has a contract that will expire in a year and a half, in the summer of 2022, but I believe the best solution for the parties is to sell in the next market.
“Otherwise, the club, with whom relations are excellent, knows well that they would risk losing him on a free transfer, given that for the moment it is not the player’s intention to extend the contract.”
