Pogba's brother drops controversial statement in Spanish TV show

Paul Pogba has a number of spokesmen to voice his thoughts and demands, and today, his brother Mathias Pogba took that role while appearing in the Spanish TV Show El Chiringuito.

The Guinean forward was quick to offer Real Madrid a silver lining in their quest to sign the wantaway Manchester United star, especially given Florentino Pérez's negotiation tactics.

"Florentino Pérez can still fulfill my brother's wish to play for Real Madrid," Mathias Pogba said.

The striker looked into Real Madrid's tactics and hinted that Zinedine Zidane could use the signing of two midfielders to boost his new project with Los Blancos.

"Which player does Zidane need? My brother, of course. I believe that my brother and one more midfielder would fit the team like a glove," Mathias Pogba added.

The Deportivo Manchego footballer questioned Manchester United's motives for holding his brother hostage after slapping him a $200M price tag.

"My brother is not worth $200M, but this is the world of football nowadays. Manchester United will ask for a lot of money, that's for sure, but he is not worth $200M," the Guinean added.

The 28-year-old looked back to his brother's problems with Jose Mourinho. While he admitted that the Special One had been a great role model in his earlier days, Pogba believes that Mou can't be considered as a top-notch manager right now.

"Mourinho is not a winner. Who is he? A player does not have to support his coach all the time, you need to do so if he supports you back. He was estranged from the whole team. I respect what he did before, but he is not a good role model right now. Klopp, Zidane and Pep are true role models," Mathias Pogba concluded.

The summer transfer window in England concluded last week, which makes it complicated for Pogba's wishes to come true. Even so, Real Madrid are experts in beating the transfer buzzer, and Pogba's future could be decided until September 2.
