Courtois reiterates desire for 'best friend' Hazard to join Real

Real Madrid´s newly appointed French coach Zinedine Zidane arrives gives a press conference on March 11, 2019 in Madrid. "So when his experience at Manchester ends, why not come here to Madrid?". "I don't agree with what people have been saying about him of late.I see him as being happy and focused on his daily work".

Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has reportedly held two phone conversations with Real Madrid in an attempt to pave the way for the Manchester United midfielder to swap clubs in the summer.

Following Zidane's reappointment as the manager earlier this month, Real Madrid made a winning start to the Frenchman's second stint as they beat Celta Vigo 2-0 before the global break.

Former Chelsea Goalie, Thibaut Courtois has told his countryman, Eden Hazard to join him at Real Madrid next season. "He played for his national team and I think that he'll be out for just a few days, but he won't be available for tomorrow".

"There's always speculation around Manchester United and players", said the Scot, who succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013 before being sacked nine months later.

"That's [keeping best players and winning trophies] our aim as a club to be achieving what we have done in the past and that is the expectations here", the Norwegian said. When I arrived at Real Madrid the cost of my transfer was 70 million euros and it was insane and now look where we are going. We know the player that he is.

"There is a lot of talk here", Zidane said. We know he can bring a lot to the team, and we will count on him.

"For me, he is a great player, but I don't decide those things".

And now Zidane has seemingly responded - stating to Spanish media before his side's clash with Huesca that signing Pogba was something of a possibility one day.
