France Football claim Zinedine Zidane has asked Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba to join him at Real Madrid.
According to the French publication, Real assistant manager and sporting director Zidane made the phone call personally to the Bleus star.
Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are already known to be interested in signing Pogba over the summer.
Juve have been adamant they will not part with the 20-year-old, who joined as a free agent two years ago from Manchester United’s youth academy.
However, they could waver if presented with an offer worth upwards of €70m.
Real have been known to make marquee signings every summer, spending €100m to take Gareth Bale from Tottenham last term.
It’s reported Carlo Ancelotti sees Pogba as the ideal replacement for Xabi Alonso in the Real Madrid midfield.
