Capello: Real Madrid right to go for great player Pogba

Former Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello is backing their move for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Capello has no doubts about the quality of the Frenchman.

"Pogba is a great player, who has quality, is physical and powerful," he told Radio Marca.

"I know him from his stint at Juventus and I followed him [when he moved to] Manchester.

"They should ask [Zinedine] Zidane and the president to sign him.

The Italian coach, however, did not seem overly enthusiastic about Neymar's possible arrival.

"Neymar is a great player but I think that he lacks humility.

"I think that Mbappe is going to win many Ballon d'Or prizes.

"I like him a lot, as he is fast, he has quality and he is in the right place at the right time."
