Spanish giants, Real Madrid has reportedly stepped up moves for Juventus’ Paul Pogba after entering into talks with the French player’s agent.
According to Sky Sports Italy, Madrid has been talking about a possible move for the midfielder, with a €8 million annual salary on the table.
And in a related vein, ESPN on Saturday quoted Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane as telling Spanish sports publication, Marca that every club in the world is interested in signing the mercurial midfielder.
While Zidane refused to go into detail when asked about Pogba, he did say that his performances have won him a lot of admirers around the world.
“Everyone wants Pogba because he is a great talent. But he is a Juventus player.”
“He’s still very young and has his own style of football so he doesn’t need to copy mine,” he said. “He’s got a bright future ahead of him.”
Zidane took charge of Madrid in January and in that time he has already won the Champions League.
He says he is not resting on his laurels, however, and is looking forward to taking the club forward next season.
“I still feel like I have much more to do, I’ve been with Madrid for the last five months and my main target is to improve this team,” he said.
