'Everybody wants Pogba' – Zidane

The Real Madrid assistant coach has hinted at increased interest in signing the 20-year-old and is backing him as a future winner of the Ballon d’Or

Zinedine Zidane has hinted that Real Madrid could be interested in signing Paul Pogba following his exceptional displays for Juventus.

Pogba, who has been instrumental in helping Juve top Serie A this season with five goals in 19 appearances, has thrived in Turin since his move from Manchester United in the summer of 2012.

The France starlet has caught the attention of many of Europe’s top clubs this season, with Paris Saint-Germain heavily linked with a move for the 20-year-old, and Zidane has not ruled out the prospect of Madrid entering the race for a player who he believes will soon be in the running to win the Ballon d’Or.

“Everybody wants him,” Zidane, a one-time winner of the Ballon d’Or, told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“In a few years Pogba will surely be among the three finalists. He is still young, but in the future he could win the Ballon d’Or.

“It’s a major award for a player and it changes your life. I won it in 1998, the same year I won the World Cup and that means that it has changed my life.”
