L'Equipe: Raphael Varane thinking of leaving Real Madrid

It is still early to predict whether David De Gea will try and force a move out of Old Trafford during the summer but we are not ready to put our money against a move since the shot-stopper was on the verge of joining Madrid a couple of seasons ago.

However, the 26-year-old has indicated that he is open to a transfer to the La Liga giants - who are managed by compatriot Zinedine Zidane - at some point in the future.

Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich has resigned to the fact that Eden Hazard will be leaving the club to join Real Madrid at the end of the season. It is one of the biggest clubs in the world.

'There is also Zidane as a coach and it's a dream for anybody who likes football.

Pogba was reluctant to discuss the situation surrounding Mourinho's demise at United but he admitted that confidence was a problem under the Portuguese coach. For now, I'm at Manchester. "I don't know, we'll see".

"Now, I am happy in Manchester".

And this time, it's Paul Pogba.

With his current contract at Stamford Bridge due to expire in 2020, it has been suggested that the Blancos have stepped up their efforts to put a deal in place by making a formal approach.

Raiola has a good relationship with United, with his clients Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku and Henrik Mkhitaryan all coming through the doors of Old Trafford in recent years.

The response from Anfield would likely be to laugh this one off, and the only way this becomes a problem for the Reds is if Mane learns of serious Real Madrid interest and agitates for a move.

Solskjaer appears to have got the best out of Pogba since the Norwegian replaced Mourinho in December.

United have also progressed into the quarter-finals of the Champions League, after knocking out French champions Paris St-Germain in the last 16.

Solskjaer has not yet been offered the United managerial post past this summer.

It will be intriguing to see if Zidane can change Varane's mind and convince him to stay at the club.

"The results have been great. I have a great relationship with him, he has a great relationship with the players", said Pogba.

A source close to the situation told TEAMtalk, "This is a transfer that appeals to all sides, and to the player himself - who wouldn't want to play for Bayern Munich?"
