Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has opened up about his desire to one day join Real Madrid.
The 27-year-old has previously hinted he would like to play for the Spanish giants and in the summer of 2019 he spoke publicly about the desire for “a new challenge”, amid interest from Madrid and Juventus.
Many expected Pogba to leave but he returned from injury when football resumed this summer and showed good form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, playing alongside Bruno Fernandes.
Even though the 2020 summer window did not see much speculation surrounding Pogba, now, speaking while on international duty with France, the 27-year-old has admitted he is thinking about his future. He said it’s his “dream” to play for Real.
“I am at Manchester. We know that this has been spoken about a lot and I have not [spoken about it],” Pogba said on the speculation. “I heard a lot of noise that I was going to leave and I was going to leave to clubs left and right.
“Today, I am still at Manchester United and I am fighting to try to take the club even higher. 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? As I have said, I am at Manchester United and I like my club.
“I am performing at Manchester United, I am enjoying myself and I want to do everything I can to get the club back to where it deserves to be. I am going to give my maximum, like my teammates. I prefer to concentrate on football and on returning to fitness.”
