The 20-year-old midfielder has scored eight goals for the reigning Italian champions so far this season, playing a key role alongside Arturo Vidal as Juve march towards claiming their third consecutive Serie A title.

Ancelotti, who also revealed his admiration for Paris St Germain playmaker Marco Verratti, could imagine Pogba doing a good job for Real at the Santiago Bernabeu, where his Spanish counterpart Isco has impressed this term.

Referring to Pogba, Ancelotti told RMC Sport: "He's a great player. He's doing a very good job at a great club. He's a very complete midfielder.

"Sign him? Why not. He's one of the best young midfielders alongside (Marco) Verratti and Isco."

Pogba's impressive performances as a France youth international earned him a move to Manchester United when he was only 16 but he joined Juventus after declining to sign a new contract with the Premier League club in 2012.

He has since made eight appearances for the France national team, scoring one goal.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
