Real Madrid interest in Pogba only logical, says Zidane

The Madrid Castilla coach has acknowledged they are keeping tabs on his compatriot but does not know whether he will be on the move this summer

Zinedine Zidane claims it is “only logical” that Real Madrid are keeping a close eye on Paul Pogba’s situation at Juventus.

The France international, 22, signed a new contract with Juventus until the summer of 2019 back in October but is still continually linked with a move away from the Serie A champions.

Clubs such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Madrid have all been touted as possible destinations for Pogba and Zidane feels interest in a player of such potential should not come as a surprise.

“When we are talking about a player like Pogba, it is only logical Real Madrid are interested in signing him,” Zidane told Canal+.

“He is a player with immense potential, who still has an important margin for improvement.

“He is still young and has an exciting future ahead of him.

“Where Pogba will play next season? I don’t know the answer to that question. You will have to ask him…”

The midfielder, who is currently recovering from a hamstring injury, has been a key figure for Juventus in 2014-15, scoring seven goals in 22 Serie A appearances.
