Paul Pogba has declared his ‘love’ for Manchester United despite revealing his ‘dream’ of playing for Real Madrid.
Pogba has been continually linked with an exit from Manchester United in recent seasons with Real Madrid often reported as a potential destination for the France international, with manager Zinedine Zidane understood to be a huge admirer of his compatriot.
Pogba admitted it would be a ‘dream’ to play for the 13 time winners, but was keen to stress that he was happy in Manchester.
“Yes, all football players would love to play for Real Madrid. It is a dream for me, why not one day?” he said at a press conference on Thursday.
“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.”
The midfielder has entered the final year of his current contract – although United have the option to trigger a one-year extension – Pogba having openly admitted his desire to leave the club last summer only for a move fail to come to fruition.
There has been talk that United will move to tie the Frenchman down to a new long-term deal, though Pogba said he was unaware of any talks to extend his stay with the Red Devils to date, but insists he is solely concentrating on his football following a disappointing start to the season for both club and player.
“No-one has told me anything,” he said at a press conference with the France national team on Thursday. “I have not spoken to [United executive vice-chairman] 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.”
