Paul Pogba: ‘It’s a Dream For me to Play For Real Madrid One Day
Paul Pogba has said he would love to play for Real Madrid one day but his focus is on helping Manchester United improve on their poor start to the Premier League season.
Pogba’s future has been the subject of much speculation in recent years, amid persistent questions over his form and fitness at Old Trafford.
The 27-year-old admitted in 2019 that he wanted to leave United but no major offers came in for him and he spent most of last season sidelined with injuries.
“Many things have been said,” Pogba told a news conference on Thursday at France’s training camp, the day after their 7-1 friendly win over Ukraine. “Of course, every footballer would love to play for Real Madrid and would dream about that. It’s a dream of mine, so why not one day?
“But I’m at Manchester United and I love my club. I play for Manchester United, I want to perform well for them and do everything to get them back to where they deserve to be.”
Pogba, who has just entered the final year of his existing contract at Old Trafford, went on to reveal that he has yet to be offered a renewal, although United do hold the option to extend the deal by 12 months.
“I have not spoken with Ed Woodward (executive vice-chairman of Manchester United),” he said. “We did not talk about a renewal. For now, I am in Manchester and I mainly think about getting back to the best of my 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.”
Pogba, who joined United from Juventus in 2016 for a then world-record fee of £89m.
