Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola admitted in MARCA that there are talks happening between Real Madrid and Juventus for the French midfielder.

"We are in the first stage of the negotiations," says Raiola in MARCA's front-page. "Paul admires Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane and that will obviously be important towards his decision," he added.

Real Madrid were reportedly discouraged when they heard that the amount of the move would reach almost €150 million including the player's salary and the bonus for the agent, but it seems that something is clearly going on between both clubs.

"€120 million, €140 million? Paul is worth whatever a club is willing to pay for him," added Raiola.

Zinedine Zidane wants to add Pogba's presence to his midfield and it seems that president Florentino Pérez wants to give his coach the player he wants. Negotiations with Juventus will not be easy but expect a summer full of reports about Pogba's potential move to Madrid.
