"What I've been most surprised by are the training sessions, we're talking about the best players in the world and I'm delighted to be playing with them".

Zidane has remained insistent on signing Pogba and impressed upon his boss that Pogba is superb player and a great professional.

"We'll have to see what happens in the coming days".

Zidane insists the 30-year-old forward is not a good fit for his squad.
