The Paul Pogba to Real Madrid transfer rumours are gathering plenty of steam in the last few days, thanks to the International break which always seems to do more harm than good and more than 1 ways.
While Pogba stirred things up a bit by flirting with the Spanish giants, even Zidane wasn’t behind in his appreciation for the Frenchman which added further fuel to the rumour.
As we covered in the previous article Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is already “reportedly” in talks with Real Madrid over the possible deal.
However, OGS has squashed all these rumours in his pre-match press conference:
“I don”t like to talk about other teams’ players,” the Norwegian said ahead of his side’s Premier League match against Wolves on Tuesday. “That is one of the challenges of the international break.
“Players are available all the time and it’s a different environment and it’s more of a general talk.
“Paul is a very nice and polite man and he answered a general question. Of course, Zidane is an icon in France. Zidane is a fantastic manager and he used to be a fantastic player and I played against him.
“So Paul has politely answered that question. But he is happy here. He is going to be a big, big part of things here.
“I have always said that you would like to build your team around him and that has not changed at all.”
Well, this one isn’t going to die anytime soon, no matter how much OGS tries to play it down.
We think this could be the flavour of the summer. How this one concludes is anyone’s guess
