Zidane: Every team would want Pogba

Zinedine Zidane has increased speculation Real Madrid could bid for Paul Pogba by admitting any club in the world would want the Juventus midfielder.

Pogba, who is expected to star for France at Euro 2016, has been linked with a host of clubs after shining in Serie A over the last few seasons.

Real Madrid are understood to be keen, and Zidane has expressed his admiration for the player.

"He is a great player, every team would want to have him," Zidane told reporters. "But he is a Juventus player and we have to respect that."

Another Juventus player linked with a move to the Bernabeu is striker Alvaro Morata.

The Spaniard left Real two seasons ago to move to Turin, but has a buy-back clause in his contract.

Reports suggest Los Blancos could activate that clause before selling on the 23-year-old once again at a profit, with a number of Premier League teams linked with a move.

When asked about Morata, Zidane replied: "He has grown a lot in Italy. I don't know what will happen, but he did very well at Juventus.

"It is normal that they still want to keep him for another year, so we will see what happens. It's not the time to talk about it yet."
