AS says Zidane has spent months insisting to Florentino Pérez and José Ángel Sánchez, the club's Director General, that the arrival of the powerful Juventus midfielder is essential.
Zizou has also been in contact with Pogba regularly to sound him out over his willingness to leave the Italian team.
But in Madrid there are doubts about his signing. They question his character off the field and his ability to adapt. Additionally, they do not like the continuous media overexposure of his agent, Mino Raiola.
