Real Madrid coach Zidane blames 2 players for Pogba signing failure

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane blames two players for failing to land Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.

Zidane wasn't shy in talking publicly his plans to bring Pogba to Madrid, but ultimately the market shut with Pogba still at Old Trafford.

And L'Equipe says the coach was left frustrated with the failure of the club to sign the midfielder.

Zidane was told any deal for Pogba hinged on the sales of James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale.

But with both midfielders failing to attract buyers, Zidane and Pogba were left frustrated this week.
