Surprise as Paul Pogba confirm imminent Man United exit

Paul Pogba has laid bare his desire to leave Manchester United amid reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid and Juventus.

Since returning to Manchester United from Juventus about three years ago, the French midfielder has continuously headlined several media wave.

He has polarised opinion about him among the fan base of United following his inconsistency on the pitch but he is high on the radar of some big clubs in Europe.

Real Madrid are currently on a spending spree and they have been heavily linked with a move for the World Cup winner. Meanwhile, Juventus have bolstered their squad but they are already anticipating the signing of the French gaffer.

And now, while in Tokyo for a promotion trip with adidas, he was quizzed about his future and he said:

“Like you said, there is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking as well,” Pogba, 26, told reporters in Tokyo.

“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.”

Pogba experienced a dip in form during the reign of Jose Mourinho and he was constantly at loggerhead with the Portuguese manager. However, he earned rave reviews when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge of the team.

He was named in the PFA team of year for last season and since rejoining United, the World Cup winner has scored 24 goals in 92 appearances for the Red Devils.
