Pogba admits he wants ‘a new challenge somewhere else’

Paul Pogba has given the strongest indication yet that he wants to leave Manchester United, admitting he is thinking of ‘a new challenge’.

The World Cup winner has been heavily linked with a move away from Manchester United this summer, with both Real Madrid and Juventus reportedly interested in signing him.

Real Madrid have already been busy in the transfer market, spending over £300 million on five players with the likes of Eden Hazard, Ferland Mendy and Luka Jovic all moving to the Bernabeu. With those signings now complete, it is thought that Los Blancos want to add one more player to their ranks, with Pogba and Tottenham‘s Christian Eriksen being linked.

Juventus are also thought to be keen on re-signing the player that they sold to United back in 2016, although their ability to meet Manchester United’s reported asking price of £130 million could be a potential stumbling block.

The Red Devils are believed to be keen to keep their record signing club, with reports in Spain claiming that the Frenchman is prepared to go on strike to force a move.

Now, the 26-year-old has admitted that he thinks that it could be a good time for ‘a new challenge somewhere else’

“Like you said, there is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking as well,” Pogba told reporters in Japan.

“For me I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great; some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody. Like everywhere else.

“After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well … I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else. I am thinking of this: to have a new challenge somewhere else.”
