Ex-PSG president Villeneuve: Zidane desperate to take Pogba to Real Madrid

Former PSG president Charles Villeneuve has revealed Real Madrid are determined to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Speaking on RMC, Villeneuve says Real are desperate to take the France World Cup winner to Spain.

He said, "I learned that little (Ferland) Mendy was going to Real and (Eden) Hazard was a priority, just like (Luka) Jovic.

"Pogba is also a huge priority for (Zinedine) Zidane. He thinks he's really a complete player. I think for the moment, it's not done. What I know is that Zidane wants Pogba, who he considers extremely complete. He knows how to defend, attack, organise the game.

"He has a steel mind as we saw during the World Cup. Zidane wants to make him one of the best players in the world."
