Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has clashed with president Florentino Perez over his willingness to sign Manchester United star Paul Pogba this summer.

Zidane has informed Perez of his desire to have the Frenchman in his team and Pogba has not hidden his desire to play for the 13 times European Champions following a poor season with Manchester United.

Pogba is not short of options as the likes of Barcelona and Juventus are craving for his signature but the World Cup winner wants to a move to Santiago Bernabeu this summer but Zidane's desire to bring his compatriot to the club is understood to have put Los Blancos in the driving seat for his signature.

Perez is not a fan of Pogba and wants Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen who has a year left in his deal with Spurs and he is not set to extend his deal with the London based club.

Real Madrid will need to cough out £160m to sign Pogba but Eriksen could be available for a cut-price, the former Juventus star wage is also a huge discouragement to Perez and he is reluctant to pay when he can get cheaper options.

Zidane was welcome back on that ground that he has 100 per cent say on the transfer but it looks as if the reverse is the case as it was evident in the case of Keylor Navas and Thibaut Courtois.
