Real Madrid inform head coach Zinedine Zidane that they will not be moving for Manchester United's Paul Pogba in 2020.

Real Madrid have reportedly informed head coach Zinedine Zidane that the club will not be moving for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in 2020.

Los Blancos were strongly linked with the France international during the summer but were unable to come to an agreement with the Red Devils over a transfer fee.

Zidane is allegedly desperate to bring the 2018 World Cup winner to the Bernabeu, but according to AS, the capital giants have told their manager to forget about a move.

The report claims that the emergence of Federico Valverde in the middle of the park has convinced the club that they do not need to spend in excess of £120m on Pogba.

The 26-year-old recovered from an ankle injury to feature in United's recent Premier League matches against Watford and Newcastle United, although he was left out against Burnley on Saturday night ahead of the trip to Arsenal on New Year's Day.

Juventus also continue to be linked with a swoop for their former midfielder.
