Zidane Downplays Madrid’s Move For Pogba

Zinedine Zidane has played down speculation linking Real Madrid with a summer move for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Speaking ahead of his team’s La Liga game against Villarreal on Sunday, Zidane downplayed the rumour that the French midfielder was set for a summer move to the Spanish capital.

“I said Pogba was a good player but I could say the same about other players,” Zidane said at a press conference on Saturday.

“I know him but nothing more. If you ask me about Pogba, I say he is a very good player but he plays for Manchester United.

“At the end of the season we will see which players come here, and who leaves, but I did not say ‘We are going to sign Pogba,’ nothing like that.

“I will not say anything until the deals are done.”

Madrid sit third in La Liga, 18 points behind champions Barcelona and with little hope of catching Atletico Madrid in second.
