Paul Pogba signs for Real Madrid... on Wikipedia

Juventus star Paul Pogba is one of Europe's hottest properties, and has been linked with a host of major sides across the continent as speculation mounts over a potential summer move.

And for a couple of hours on Wednesday evening, it appeared that the Frenchman had traded Turin for the Spanish capital - according to Wikipedia, at least.

"His current team is Real Madrid C.F."

From shortly before 18:00 to around 20:00 CEST, Pogba's opening description on the Spanish version of the collaborative online encyclopaedia read: "He plays as a midfielder and his current team is Real Madrid C.F. of the Spanish First Division".

Paul Pogba's Spanish Wikipedia entry lists him as a Real Madrid player.

Real boss Zinedine Zidane, a fervent admirer of the former Manchester United player, is understood to be keen to bring the 23-year-old to the Santiago Bernabéu during the close season.

However, neither Madrid nor Juve have announced a transfer involving Pogba - who is part of France's Euro 2016 squad - and such a deal is currently believed to remain some way from becoming a reality.
