Real Madrid have issued a statement denying reports suggesting that they have made contact with Paul Pogba over a potential transfer.

The French international is wanted by a host of top clubs including Manchester United but Italian newspaper La Stampa claimed that Real had already held talks. The club issued a statement this morning claiming that was 'absolutely false'.

Pogba, who left Manchester United on a free transfer in 2012 after complaining of a lack of first team action, has helped Juventus win three consecutive Serie A titles on his way to being one of the most coveted midfielders in Europe.

The former Le Harve ace has been heavily linked with Real Madrid in the past but his agent Mino Raiola hit out at the Spanish club in March, accusing them of 'throwing away' talented players.

He said: "Real Madrid are a club that is used to buying players like you buy a facecloth -- and then throws them away like a facecloth."

Raiola added: "Real are a team that sees a player who has six good games at the World Cup and buys him. "We don't want to go to a club like that. We want to go to a club that believes in Paul's potential. I am not closing the door to Real, but I'm not opening it either."

Despite that La Stampa claimed this week that Real Madrid have presented a formal offer to Juventus - something that the Spanish club have outright rejected.

The statement read: "Following the reports published in the Italian newspaper La Stampa concerning an alleged offer from Real Madrid for the player Paul Pogba, the club wishes to state the following:

"Real Madrid have had no contact either with Juventus or the player's agent and, as a consequence, the reports published in this newspaper are completely false."

Bayern Munich want Di Maria

Bayern Munich are the latest team to be linked with a move for Manchester United winger Angel di Maria.

The Mirror report that the German giants are taking an interest in the Argentinian international, who has struggled at Old Trafford after his club record £59.7 million move from Real Madrid.

However the Red Devils are demanding the vast majority of the fee they paid out last year, and Bayern may be unwilling to fork out that sort of cash for a player who scored just four Premier League goals last season.

Manchester United favourites in Reus race

And finally Manchester United are now favourites to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus after Real Madrid pulled out of the race. That's according to talkSPORT, who claim United will face stiff competition from Arsenal for the world-class 25-year-old who has scored 11 goals in 24 appearances for BVB this season.
