Paul Pogba’s agent has confirmed that he has begun talks with Real Madrid about a potential world record summer transfer.

The Juventus star – who is contracted to the Italian club until the summer of 2019 – is in his homeland playing for France at Euro 2016.

But his agent Mino Raiola says he is in contact with three clubs interested in signing the midfielder – and confirmed European champions Real are one of them.

Raiola told Spanish paper Marca: “We are talking (with Real) but nothing is decided. [Real coach] Zinedine Zidane’s wish is important. The club’s wish is important.

“We are in the initial phase. It’s not a negotiation. Both sides know what it wants and we shall see if we complete a deal or it ends in divorce.”

“Paul dreams of winning the Ballon d’Or…Real Madrid is a fantastic club to achieve that.


Pogba made 48 appearances in all competitions for Juve this past season, helping the club clinch a Serie A and Coppa Italia double.

“He wouldn’t have a problem staying at Juventus,” Raiola said. “He is very happy there. Paul chooses his future as it’s the logical thing.”
