£89m-rated midfielder frightened Man United fans with shock announcement

Paul Pogba revealed it would be a ‘dream’ to play for Real Madrid but remains content at Old Trafford. The World Cup winner was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer following the break down in his relationship with Jose Mourinho.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment in December triggered an exceptional run of form which has catapulted Manchester United back into top four contention as well as the Champions League quarter-finals.

Paul Pogba’s displays at the heart of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s midfield had been instrumental to a club-record run of eight successive away wins, but the reappointment of Zinedine Zidane at Santiago Bernabeu appears to have turned the former Juventus man’s head.

‘Like I’ve always said, Real Madrid is a dream for anyone. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world,’ Pogba said. ‘There is also [Zinedine] Zidane as a coach and it’s a dream for anybody who likes football. ‘For now, I’m at Manchester. We don’t know what the future holds. I’m at Manchester, and I’m happy.’

The Red Devils beat off competition from Real Madrid to resign Paul Pogba from Juventus during Jose Mourinho’s first summer in charge at Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old’s current deal expires in just two years but is yet to enter into talks over an extension. Zinedine Zidane will be handed a huge transfer budget to work with come the close season and is understood to have targeted some Premier League-based players including the likes of Eden Hazard, Sadio Mane and David de Gea.
