Paul Pogba has admitted that it would be a “dream” to play for Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane.

The Spanish giants have just re-appointed Zidane as their manager after their poor start to the season, and attentions will now inevitably turn towards the summer transfer window and the players the La Liga side could look to sign.

Pogba is widely regarded as one of Manchester United’s most important players and he has been a regular fixture in the Red Devils team since his world-record move back to the club in the summer of 2016.

The France international seemingly had a difficult relationship with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United before the Portuguese coach was sacked in December last year.

Manchester United will likely be keen to keep hold of the World Cup winning midfielder this summer.

However, Pogba has seemingly left the door open to a potential move to Real Madrid in the future when asked about the Spanish side during international duty.

Pogba is quoted as saying by Sky Sports in a news conference: “Like I’ve always said, Real Madrid is a dream for anyone. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“There is also [Zinedine] Zidane as a coach and it’s a dream for anybody who likes football.

“For now, I’m at Manchester. We don’t know what the future holds. I’m at Manchester and I’m happy.”

Meanwhile, Manchester United will return to Premier League action after the international break when they host Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday 30 March.
