Real Madrid have moved quickly to deny reports suggesting they have made a bid to sign the France international midfielder Paul Pogba from Juventus.

The 22-year-old ex-Manchester United player had reportedly been offered a five-year deal by the Spanish club who have made an official announcement to say the report is “completely false”.

The statement read: “Following the reports published in the Italian newspaper La Stampa concerning an alleged offer from Real Madrid for the player Paul Pogba, the club wishes to state the following: Real Madrid have had no contact either with Juventus or the player’s agent and, as a consequence, the reports published in this newspaper are completely false.”

Pogba has a contract with Juve until 2019 but has hinted in the past that he would welcome a move to La Liga.

The midfielder moved to Turin three years ago from Manchester United and has gone on to flourish in Italy, scoring 20 times in 88 Serie A appearances for Juve and playing a key role in their run to the Champions League final.

Barcelona can be backed at 1.62 to win the Champions League final in Berlin’s Olympic Stadium on 6th June, while Juventus are 5.50 to come out on top.

Meanwhile, Sami Khedira is on the verge of moving from Real to Juventus after passing a medical.

The Germany international, who has struggled with injuries for the last two years, is set to move to Italy on a free transfer and is expected to sign a four-year contract with The Old Lady.
