Playing for Real Madrid is a boyhood dream, says Manchester United’s midfielder Paul Pogba.

United broke the world record fee bringing Pogba back to the club, paying $100m to Juventus, back in 2017.

Speaking to the press last night, in a training camp with the French National team, Pogba said a lot has been said about him these past few years. But he is still committed to his club, Manchester United, and he aims to take the club back to the top level.

 “Of course, every footballer would love to play for Real Madrid and would dream about that. It’s a dream of mine, so why not one day?

“But I’m at Manchester United and I love my club. I play for Manchester United, I want to perform well for them and do everything to get them back to where they deserve to be,” Pogba said.

Pogba is one of the heaviest criticized player in the league, ever since his return to English football. He has been targeted for criticism since the start of the season as he has not performed up to his expectations, coming back from beating coronavirus during the season break.

United has lost two out of the three games they’ve played in the league, losing 1-6 at home to Spurs, which was their worst league defeat since 2011. They’ve lost both their home games this season in the league.

After failing to get their main target in the transfer window, United managed to bring a new forward, Edi Cavani from PSG and Alex Telles from Porto who plays left back. United also brought two young stars in, Amad Traore will join the club in January and Facundo Pellistri who will join the full team now.
