Paul Pogba has admitted that playing for Real Madrid would be “a dream” as speculation continues to grow over his future at Manchester United.
The 27-year-old central midfielder is currently on international duty for France, and came on as a substitute in the 7-1 thrashing of Ukraine in a friendly on Wednesday.
Pogba’s contract is due to expire in the summer of 2021, although the club have an option to extend it for a further year.
There was talk that he could soon sign a new long-term deal at United, although this has yet to materialise.
When asked about the prospect of a move to LaLiga, Pogba replied: “We have all heard these things that have been said. What to respond?
“Yes, all footballers would like to play for Real Madrid. Maybe it is a dream. It is a dream for me, why not one day.”
Pogba did, however, also insist that for now his focus is fully on United, and he seems determined to help the team turn around their recent poor form.
“I am at Manchester,” he continued. “We know that this has been spoken about a lot and I have not spoken about it.
