Real Madrid president Florentino and Zidane clash over Pogba in Montreal

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and coach Zinedine Zidane have clashed in Montreal.

Perez flew in to Canada to join Real's preseason tour and to discuss transfer strategy with Zidane.

Marca says Zidane is demanding Florentino sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, but has been warned a deal - as it stands - is unlikely.

With United insisting Pogba won't be allowed to leave for less than €180m, Florentino informed his coach nothing will happen unless they can secure some major sales.

Indeed, Florentino urged Zidane in the catch-up to nominate alternative targets.

A suggestion which has left Zidane frustrated.
