Marca: Pogba is Zidane’s leader

Zinedine Zidane wants Manchester United star Paul Pogba to be the leader of his new Real Madrid side next season – according to reports in Marca this weekend.

Pogba, 26, has been heavily linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, and his French compatriot is a big fan of the former Juventus man.

"I like Pogba a lot – that is nothing new, Zidane said in his weekly Saturday press conference

"He is someone that I know personally and he is different.

"He knows how to attack and how to defend."

Pogba is reportedly staling on agreeing a new deal at Old Trafford, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to tie him to a long term extension, however he is set to feature high on Zidane's summer shopping list.
