Zinedine Zidane insistent on bringing Manchester United star to Real Madrid

He had replaced Jose Mourinho as the Manchester United manager in December 2018 on a temporary basis before his appointment was made permanent in March 2019.

"If I tell you that I didn't speak with Mr Levy about Eriksen, Alderweireld and Vertonghen, I would be lying", he admitted.

Mourinho, meanwhile, says his time at United is "a closed chapter" and he is only interested in beating them.

"This is a closed chapter for me", said Mourinho, who has won all three of his matches in charge of Spurs.

"When Karim asked me about leaving Lyon I had received two offers: one from United and one from Real Madrid", explained Aulas.

Mourinho left United when they were sixth in the Premier League.

The 56-year-old won the League Cup, the Europa League and the Community Shield during his time at United, as well as finishing runners-up in the league in 2017-18.

"I don't think Valverde is like Pogba", Zidane said, making it clear that he believes Pogba is something special. How can they beat us?

Said the Portuguese: "I feel good, I like to play big matches, I like to play against the best teams and go back to a place where I was happy".

Manchester United have stuck to their guns on Pogba, who has been out with injury at a crucial time in the Red Devils' season, but Zidane's insistence on signing the Frenchman might prove to be too much to handle. I went back as a pundit and I was humbled by such a attractive reception. "So, yes I'm speaking with Mr Levy about it".
