Real Madrid has been ruled out of the potential move for Juventus’ French midfielder Paul Pogba but the Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has had very little effort to hide his admiration for the player.
Pogba was for some time linked with the Spanish giants but after Manchester United came in the picture with talks of a big money move, Real Madrid opted out.
Speaking at a press conference in Montreal, where Real will play Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup, Zidane stated his liking for Pogba but refused to be drawn on the subject further.
“I’m very happy with the squad I have available. It’s difficult to improve,” Zidane said. “Do I like Pogba? Of course, he’s a very good player and every club wants the best players, but right now he’s at Juve and we have a large squad already.
“There are still lots of players yet to join up with the squad and with the Euros going on we couldn’t do anything. We have three games coming up and that’s the focus at the moment.” He said.
