Mathias reveals Paul Pogba in contact with Barcelona star Messi

Mathias Pogba says kid brother Paul has spoken to Barcelona star Leo Messi about playing in Spain.

Paul Pogba failed to secure an exit from Manchester United in the summer, with Real Madrid the most interested party in his signature.

Mathias, now with Manchego, told El Chiringuito TV when shown a headline from England in which Sergio Ramos has admitted to being a big fan of his brother: "I know he's spoken with a few players, but not Ramos.

"Who? Oh, Messi. Sometimes, not always. Zlatan [Ibrahimovic]. Griezmann, because of the national team."

However, Mathias has admitted that some figures from the Bernabeu have made contact through the French national team.

Mathias added: "I don't know about anyone from Real Madrid. Oh, [Raphael] Varane, yes, and yes, with [Zinedine] Zidane, yes."
