Real Madrid are reportedly ready to step up their interest in Paul Pogba and hope to secure a deal before the Premier League's August 8 transfer deadline.
The Spanish giants have been long-term admirers of the Manchester United midfielder, who has made no secret of his desire to leave this summer.
But they are keeping their options open for a new midfield dynamo until the end of the La Liga window on September 2, according to reports in Spain.
