Paul Pogba has hinted at a move away from Manchester United by stating it would be a ‘dream’ to join Real Madrid as his Old Trafford contract runs down.
The Frenchman’s contract at the Premier League giants expires in just 10 months and the 27-year-old has admitted that Red Devils chief executive Ed Woodward has not approached him over a new deal.
Pogba has been strongly linked with a move from United for around a year, especially when missed much of last season with a long-term injury and agent Mino Raiola fired shots at the club for a ‘lack of sporting direction’.
Despite Pogba remaining a key player at Old Trafford this season, he told a press conference for the French national team on Thursday: ‘Yes, all football players would love to play for Real Madrid. It is a dream for me, why not one day?
‘I am in Manchester and I love my club. I am playing in Manchester, I’m having fun and I want to do everything to put the club where it deserves it. I will give everything to the max, like my teammates.’
Manchester United are currently in a crisis on the pitch after their 6-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last weekend left them in 16th place after three games.
It followed a difficult summer for the Red Devils, who missed out on top transfer target Jadon Sancho and then failed to bring in a player in his position during the summer window.
Now they are set for another transfer saga as the club are currently refusing to enter negotiations with Pogba over a new deal, despite the French midfielder being a popular figure at Old Trafford.
Pogba continued: ‘No-one has told me anything. I have not spoken to Ed Woodward. We haven’t spoken about a new deal.
‘At the moment, I am in Manchester and I am concentrating about getting back to my best form.
‘I think there will be a moment when the club will come and talk to me and maybe offer me something, or not.
‘So far, nothing has happened. I can’t tell you something that I don’t know.’
