Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane admitted there's a chance Los Blancos sign Paul Pogba this summer. When asked about the Juventus midfielder in the press conference the day before the friendly against PSG, this is what Zidane had to say.

"I don't know if Pogba will come, we're working here and until August 31st anything can happen. He is not a Real Madrid player so we cannot talk about that at the moment, and even though it's through that I always speak my mind about everything, this is not time to talk about Pogba. Every club wants him, he's a great player and when you're Real Madrid you want the best playing for you, but he's still a Juventus player," said Zidane.

While the coach tried to respect Juventus's contract with the player, he clearly admitted that Real Madrid are indeed interested in Pogba. Florentino Pérez will try to get a deal done even though Madrid might need to spend around €120 million on the midfielder.
