Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says playing for Real Madrid under returning head coach Zinedine Zidane would be a “dream for anyone”.
Zinedine Zidane returned to Santiago Bernabeu as manager earlier this month, replacing Santiago Solari.
The Frenchman, who left Real last summer after leading the club to three consecutive Champions League titles, signed a deal at the Bernabeu until June 2022.
Pogba, who had been linked with an exit during recent transfer windows, conceded playing for the former France captain at one of the world’s biggest clubs would be a dream come true.
Paul Pogba has exclusively told Sky he wants Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to replace Jose Mourinho as Manchester United manager on a permanent basis.
“Like I’ve always said, Real Madrid is a dream for anyone. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world,” Pogba said in France’s pre-Moldova press conference.
“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.”
Zidane was in the frame to be Manchester United’s permanent manager before his return to Real Madrid was confirmed.
