Club managers must hate it when their players go on international duty.
Not only is there a risk of them getting injured, but it seems players just can’t help themselves when talking to the media without their club liaison watching over them.
There’s always the chance that quotes get misinterpreted but time and time again, players often say all the wrong things.
And this time, it’s Paul Pogba.
The Manchester United midfielder has teamed back up with world champions France ahead of their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Moldova and Iceland.
And Pogba was asked about the possibility of signing for Real Madrid, who have recently appointed fellow Frenchman Zinedine Zidane as their manager.
And Pogba didn’t exactly talk down the chance of signing for the Bernabeu club.
"Like I've always said, Real Madrid is a dream for anyone. It's one of the biggest clubs in the world," Pogba said.
"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."
Well, that’s hardly music to the ears of United fans.
Real are expected to spend big in the summer after what will surely be a trophyless campaign.
And it’s believed Zidane was promised a hefty transfer budget upon his return to the club where he won three Champions Leagues.
And with Luka Madrid and Isco struggling this season in the middle of midfield, it certainly wouldn’t be surprising to see Zidane eyeing up a move for Pogba.
Of course, the Red Devils will be extremely reluctant to allow the £89 million man to leave but it seems he’s more than open to a move…News Now - Sport News
