Deschamps has said he will offer Paul Pogba advice on a summer transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid if he asks for it

France boss Didier Deschamps is ready to help Manchester United’s Paul Pogba weigh up a potential move to Real Madrid this summer.

Pogba, who Deschamps named in his France squad for their next two Euro 2020 qualifiers, has been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu.

New Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is a known admirer of the United midfielder, while the 26-year-old has previously said that joining Los Blancos would be ‘a dream’.

After an initial revival under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Pogba’s form dropped towards the end of the season - along with that of most of his team-mates as United failed to secure a Champions League place for next season.

But Deschamps is not concerned about the midfielder's dip - and as France prepare for a friendly against Bolivia, followed by Euro 2020 qualifiers against Turkey and Andorra next month, the head coach knows Pogba may look to him for advice over a potential switch this summer.

The former France midfielder said in quotes reported by the Mirror via Daily Mail : "Drops in form are not unique to Paul. If he asks me for advice (on Real Madrid) I will give it to him."
