- Zinedine Zidane could resign as Real Madrid boss for the second time in a year
- It is understood that the Frenchman is unhappy after Florentino Perez failed to sign Paul Pogba
- A deal was not agreed between Man United and Real Madrid before the Premier League transfer window was shut
Zinedine Zidane could quit as Real Madrid manager for a second time after the club failed to sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United.
The Los Blancos boss was desperate to sign the United midfielder this summer and the feeling was mutual with his fellow compatriot.
Zidane had told President Florentino Perez to make Pogba his priority but the Red Devils have refused to accept Real's demands.

And with the Premier League transfer window closed last week, the dream of landing the France international could hit brick wall.
Perez was not keen to do a deal due to Pogba's huge wages, while Zidane wanted to added more bite to his aging midfield.
The chief also clashed with Zidane after the French boss clashed with Gareth Bale, as Perez stopped the Welshman's mega move to China.
And despite bringing Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Ferland Mendy and Eder Militao to the Bernabeu, Zidane could be set to quit Real.
"Not signing Pogba puts Zidane on the brink of resigning,” Spanish journalist Diego Torres told the Independent.
“Zidane personally promised Pogba he would bring him to Madrid, and now he is left looking bad.
“This has only increased the lack of confidence between Zidane and Florentino.
“For Zidane, his project and Pogba are almost the same thing. Nothing that he was promised has really come to pass.
“Zidane returned as a protective shield for Florentino, but he has already fulfilled that political and social mission.”
Zidane resigned as Real manager shortly after winning his third successive Champions League title in 2018.
But after embarrassing spells under Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari, Zidane made his heroic return in March.
