Report: Zidane Contacted Pogba's Agent

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has reportedly not given up on his pursuit of Paul Pogba, and recently held talks with the Manchester United superstar's agent.

The 47-year-old tactician is said to be a big fan of his countryman, and has been trying to lure him to the Spanish giants for a while now.

However, the transfer has not yet materialised, and the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic might make it impossible for Real to get their man in the coming window.

Zidane, though, recently contacted Pogba's agent Mino Raiola to assure him he is still interested in the midfielder, according to Le10sport.

Raiola himself recently hinted that he is still working on a deal to take the 27-year-old to the Santiago Bernabeu.

"My relations with Real Madrid are very good," he said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

"I want to take a great footballer there and I will try this summer."

United, meanwhile, are said to be calm about rumours of the Frenchman's potential exit as the club's bosses believe it is only Raiola who wants his client to join Real.

Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are also understood to be interested in the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.

Pogba, who has made only seven appearances for United so far this season due to several injury setbacks, has regained full fitness and joined up with the rest of the squad for team training.

He is expected to return to action once the Premier League resumes from 17 June.
