Manchester United

Real are a dream club says Pogba

21st March 2019, 02:36 by Michael Holland

Paul Pogba insists he is happy playing for Manchester United but has described Real Madrid as a dream club.

The Frenchman has revealed how pleased he is to be playing regularly under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when asked about the prospect of joining Real.

He insisted he was happy at United even though he was an admirer of the Spanish giants, who are looking to rebuild under newly reappointed coach Zinedine Zidane.

In remarks carried by French newspaper L'Equipe, Pogba, speaking at a press conference ahead of France's Euro 2020 qualifier against Moldova on Friday, revealed his admiration of Real.

"It's a dream for every child, for every football player," he said. "Today, I'm in Manchester and I'm happy. We have a new coach and I play. After, we do not know what the future will tell us."

At least one new midfielder is high on the wanted list on Zidane, so it was inevitable that Pogba would eventually be linked with a switch to the Bernabeu.
