The Frenchman says he has not given up hope of luring the Juventus star, who has emerged as Manchester United’s top transfer target, to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has confirmed the club are still pushing to sign in-demand Juventus star Paul Pogba this summer.
The Spanish giants have been strongly linked with Pogba but have fallen behind Manchester United in the race to land him, Goal understands.
Goal reported earlier this month that United have an agreement in place to sign Pogba for €110m (£92m), which would make him the most expensive player of all time.
However, Zidane has revealed the France midfielder is still a target for Madrid and insists “anything can happen” regarding Pogba’s future from now unti the end of August.
“In this moment we are still working [on a move for Pogba], and I cannot say anything more,” the Madrid coach said.
“Until August 31 anything can happen, but today he is not a Real Madrid player and I cannot talk about what will happen.
“I always say how things are, but now is not the time to talk about this. A lot of clubs are interested in Pogba.
“Real Madrid always want the best players. But we owe Juventus respect, and I can’t say anything more out of respect.”
Madrid are in the United States ahead of their International Champions Cup clash with Paris Saint-Germain in Columbus.
And Zidane also confirmed James Rodriguez, Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric will not play, having only just joined up with the squad.
