Euro giants boss eyes £80m Chelsea target to kick start new era

Zinedine Zidane is determined to make £80m Chelsea target Paul Pogba his first signing in charge of Real Madrid, report talkSPORT.

The Juventus superstar is one of the best young talents in world football, having recently been named in the FIFA FIFPRO XI, marking the 11 best players in world football.

Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona have been linked with big money moves for the Frenchman, though compatriot Zidane is reportedly eager to lure him to the Spanish capital.

The World Cup winning Les Blues legend has been handed the reins at the Santiago Bernabeu following the decision to axe Rafa Benitez after just seven months.
