Real Madrid are one of the teams interested in signing in-demand Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, coach and former player Zinedine Zidane has confirmed.
Pogba is expected to be at the centre of a summer bidding war after another impressive season in which he helped the Old Lady to a domestic double and the Champions League final.
Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have already declared their admiration for the 22-year-old, while Manchester United & Manchester City are apparently heading the Premier League interest.
But all of the above will be alarmed to hear that Real are also hot on his tail. Zidane, who coaches Madrid’s Castilla side, has described his French compatriot as “extraordinary”.

“I think he’s fantastic,” Zidane told French radio station RTL. “What I like about him is that he has everything. He’s a complete player, who is also capable of scoring goals as he likes to get forward.
“In terms of his footballing qualities, he’s extraordinary. A lot of clubs are interested, we can also talk about Real.”
It has been suggested that it would take an offer of £80m to persuade Juventus to sell Pogba, who joined them on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2012.
