Paul Pogba would thrive at Real Madrid – brother Mathias

Paul Pogba’s brother Mathias has explained that the France international would thrive playing at Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane.

28-year-old Mathias – capped five times by the Guinean national team – has played for a number of clubs across European football and was most recently at French club Tours but was a free agent prior to joining Spanish fourth division side CD Manchego.

“Everyone knows that my brother would be very important for Real Madrid and Zidane,” Mathias told an interview with Diario AS. “Those who have to talk are Madrid and Manchester United.

“He is very good at the moment, as he always is. Let no one expect me to say something bad about United. He is a professional and his present is there.

“His future? It depends on the clubs: that Manchester would want to sell and that Madrid would want to buy. This is business.

“I don't know what to say…Zidane has always spoken well of my brother, it's an honour. Another thing is to be paid attention.”

Florentin – a defender who played with his brother Mathias at Celta – is currently playing in the United States with Atlanta United having been on trial with Spanish second tier side Elche in January.

Madrid are said to be intent on signing Paul from Manchester United but have been priced out of a deal so far this summer.
