INSIDER: Zidane told Florentino at Real Madrid Christmas lunch 'get me Pogba'

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is again urging president Florentino Perez to reopen talks with Manchester United for Paul Pogba.

Florentino made an attempt for Pogba over the summer, but was put off by United's €200m valuation - much to the frustration of Zidane.

The issue has been raised again at the club's Christmas lunch.

And Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, while speaking on El Chiringuito, revealed: "Today (Monday) at the Christmas meal, the Pogba issue has come up again and the Real Madrid coach has told the president again to make an effort for Pogba in the January market.

"Pogba ends his contract with United in 2021 and this is United's last chance to make a good deal for the French."
