IN OTHER NEWS: Zidane reveals Pogba admiration

Elsewhere in the world of football...

“Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has admitted he is a big admirer of Paul Pogba, but says he is happy with his squad” report Sky Sports.

“France international Pogba has been targeted by Jose Mourinho in a bid to reinvigorate Manchester United's midfield, although Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is keen to hold onto his prized asset.

“Real were also reported to be interested in acquiring the 23-year-old but, according to sources close to the deal, United's superior financial strength has forced president Florentino Perez to admit defeat in his pursuit of the player.

“"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.”
