Real Madrid are reportedly considering alternative options to Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba if his move doesn't eventually materialise according to Kick Ghana.
Pogba has been reportedly keen on leaving Old Trafford to play under Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, however, United have made it clear that they will not be releasing the France international.
However, if Madrid had to sign the 26-year-old, they would have to cough up approximately £100million despite Pogba not being keen on extending his current contract beyond 2022.
Reports in Spain have emerged that Partey has emerged on Madrid's radar and if he were to make a move it would be deemed controversial as he currently plays for Atletico.
The Ghana international is said to have left Zidane impressed after the two sides had played to a goalless draw back in September in the Madrid derby.
Partey currently has four years left on his contract with Atletico but that won't stop from making a move when the January transfer window opens.
