Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted that it is a dream of his to play for Real Madrid one day.

But the 27-year-old added that he will “do everything” to put United “where the club deserves” to be.

The France international has regularly been linked with a move away from the team, which he rejoined for £89 million in 2016.

“At the moment, I am in Manchester and I am concentrating on 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,” said Pogba.

The World Cup-winner’s contract expires in the summer, although United can activate the option of a further year until 2022.

Pogba said there had not been any discussions with the club over an extension. “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-chairperson] Ed Woodward. We haven’t spoken about a new deal.

“At the moment, I am in Manchester and I am concentrating on 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,” Pogba said.

Asked about the prospect of a move to Madrid, he replied: “All football players would love to play for Real Madrid. It is a dream for me, why not one day?

“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. I will give everything to the max, like my teammates.”

United have had a terrible start to the season, winning just one of their opening three league games.

After losing to 3-1 to Crystal Palace in their season opener, just before the international break they were hammered 6-1 at home by Tottenham Hotspur leaving them 16th in the PL table.
