Real Madrid‘s link to Paul Pogba picked up steam last summer when Zinedine Zidane returned to manage the 13 time UEFA Champions League winners. Reports suggest that the French World Cup Winner is at the top of Zidane’s wishlist. Allegedly, Los Blancos manager had insisted on the signing of the Manchester United player when he agreed to come back and coach the Royal Whites.

Pogba is undoubtedly one of the biggest talents in world football. When he joined the Red Devils from Juventus in the 2016/17 season, he became the most expensive signing at the time.
