Chelsea and Arsenal face La Liga competition for midfielder

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed his interest in Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, who is a reported target for both Arsenal and Chelsea, according to the Express.

The former Manchester United midfielder is one of the most wanted players in Europe, after scoring 8 goals and providing 12 assists from central midfield for Juve this season.

Pogba has been linked with a return to England since the summer, with London duo Chelsea and Arsenal said to be showing the most interest.

But the Premier League giants will have to fend off interest from the mighty Real Madrid, after Ancelotti confirmed his interest in the ‘complete midfielder.’

Referring to Pogba, Ancelotti said: “He’s a great player. He’s doing a very good job at a great club. He’s a very complete midfielder.

“Sign him? Why not. He’s one of the best young midfielders alongside (Marco) Verratti and Isco.”

Pogba left Manchester United in 2012 after being given a lack of first team opportunities by former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

He has since gone on to star for Juventus who sit top of Serie A, and has also won eight caps for France.
