FIFA announced the two transfer-window ban dished out to Real and Atletico will be suspended while they investigate the appeals both clubs have made. The bans were handed down over breaches of rules surrounding the signing of youth players from abroad.
Italian paper La Gazzetta Dello Sport says Madrid will have a limited time to boost their squad ahead of a ban coming into affect and they want to secure the best talent they can while they are able to.
Pogba has long been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu after flourishing n Turin since joining from Manchester United. A fee for the Frenchman would be in the region of 80 million euros if Los Blancos wanted to sign him – and he is admired greatly by boss Zinedine Zidane.
Morata moved to the Old Lady in 2014 from Real having failed to establish himself as a regular at the 10-time Champions League winners. He goals in each leg of the semi-final last season helped knock his old club out of Europe’s premier club football tournament and has seen Madrid pick up their interest in him again with a view to buying him back.
