Deschamps: I'll offer Pogba advice on Real Madrid

France coach Didier Deschamps says he's happy to offer Paul Pogba advice about the prospect of leaving Manchester United this summer.

Real Madrid target Pogba has been named in a 24-man France squad for the upcoming friendly international against Bolivia and their next two Euro 2020 qualifiers against Turkey and Andorra next month.

Asked about Pogba after revealing the squad, Deschamps said: "Drops in form are not unique to Paul.

"If he asks me for advice [on Real Madrid] I will give it to him."

Pogba enjoyed a resurgence in form during the winter months when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as United manager but this tailed off towards the end of the campaign.
