Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has admitted that he would be interested in the possibility of signing Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.
Due to their French connections, Real Madrid are reportedly in pole position to sign Pogba in the summer. The Frenchman has been one of the most talked about players in recent months. Despite Juventus winning the league title for a fifth consecutive season, the possibility to join a club like Madrid or Barcelona cannot be dismissed by any player. Zidane may look at the possibility of taking advantage of this situation.
He has managed to win the Champions League in just over eight months into his managerial career. After taking over from Rafa Benitez in the summer, Zidane was expected to last until the end of the campaign. Only his performances at the end of the season would determine if he would continue in the Madrid hot seat. Even though Madrid failed to win the league title for yet another campaign and they also were knocked out of the Copa del Rey due to administrative reasons, Zidane managed to win the biggest prize of them all – Champions League. He has thus become part of an elite list of names to have won the title as a player and as a manager.
“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’s got a bright future ahead of him. 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,” said Zidane in a recent interview about Pogba. Despite winning the Champions League, the former Ballon d’Or winner is already looking forward to the next season.
