Paul Pogba has been at the center of transfer talks between Real Madrid and Juventus before Euro 2016. Current reports on the French youngster say Los Blancos will have to break their transfer record to sign him.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the Italian champions are holding out for €160 million.
Meanwhile, Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is overly interested in his fellow Frenchman who he has been tracking for a while. Having reputable players like Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in his Champions League-winning side isn’t enough threat to stop him from the ambition.
Zizou has reportedly made the 23-year-old midfielder his top target.
History has it that Zidane left Juventus for Real himself in 2001. The Madrid legend’s tight connection to the Italian club could be the key to the deal happening.
Other reports say power brokers in the Spanish capital including Real president Florentino Perez are aware the potential deal will be difficult to pull off but the hope is always there as usual, especially for a talented player like Paul Pogba.
