INSIDER: Zidane wants Neymar at Real Madrid over Pogba

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane hasn't been serious about bringing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba to Spain, it has been claimed.

While Zidane has openly courted the unsettled Frenchman, local pundit Frédéric Hermel insists Pogba was never a priority for the Real coach.

He explained: "Tensions around the non-arrival of Pogba? I think the club did not do everything to recruit Pogba because they thought they could recruit Neymar at the finish line.

"So, of course, Pogba did not come, but Zidane has all the players he had requested. He wanted (Luka) Jovic, (Eden) Hazard and (Ferland) Mendy and he has them all."
