Real Madrid defender Varane: Pogba a good friend, great player

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane says he hasn’t spoken to Paul Pogba about his transfer plans.

The Juventus midfielder is expected to join Manchester United this week, though Real could yet make a late intervention.

“He’s a friend,” said Varane.

“I’ve spoken to him but not recently. I don’t know what he’s thinking. He’s a great player. We’ve got a great team and it’s the club that decides.

“I’ve got nothing more to say about it.”
