Real Madrid's Zidane: I like Manchester United star Pogba a lot

Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois

The Real manager played down suggestions that the 26-year-old could make a move to the Bernabeu this summer, though.

Eden is one of my best friends in football.

"I don't know, two possibilities, I think". He is different and he contributes things that few can do, as he knows how to attack and defend.

"But he is not my player, he is at Manchester".

Gareth Bale earned praise from Zinedine Zidane but the returning Real Madrid boss refused to give assurances over the winger's future in Spain.

Pogba last week fuelled rumours that his second spell at United could be coming to an end when he said it would "be a dream" to play for Real Madrid.

Pogba, 26, has been linked with the Spanish giants and described Real as "a dream club for every player" while on worldwide duty with France. "I do not know if he's going to sign for Real Madrid, nor do I know if the club wants him".

Zidane was asked whether any player could be worth the €280 million mooted as the price for Paris Saint-Germain's France forward Kylian Mbappe.

The family of Jackson Musoni, a Rwandan citizen, filed what appeared to be the first suit related to the crash. U.S. pilots complained after the Lion Air crash that they had not been fully briefed on the system.

"I understand it [the transfer rumours] because you have to talk about something", said Zidane.

"We know the player he is but he is not my player".

"Nobody can take away what he has done".

Chelsea now sit in sixth in the Premier League, three points outside the Champions League places with eight games remaining.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Rivaldo said: "Hazard could be more than just a great player at Madrid".

"I don't see him as people have said recently".

"The doctors will look at it and see how long he will be out", Zidane said.

Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Varane also missed out on Madrid's squad, rested after training without issues on Saturday morning.
