Sky Sport Italia have dismissed reports that Real Madrid have made a move to sign Juventus’ Paul Pogba or M’Baye Niang of Milan.
Stories in Spain today claimed that Real chief Florentino Perez had sent a private jet to collect the father of a young French player who is currently plying his trade in Serie A.
Speculation quickly suggested that Pogba or Niang could be their intended target at the end of the season.
However, Sky Sport Italia market expert Gianluca Di Marzio has this afternoon poured cold water on those reports.
He maintains that the Spanish giants have made no moves to sign any French player who is currently based on the peninsula.
