Pogba admits to Real dream

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba claims Real Madrid is a "a dream club for every player" but he is happy at Old Trafford.

There was plenty of speculation linking the France international with a move away from the Red Devils, after falling out with manager Jose Mourinho.

However, the Portuguese tactician was replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the move has appeared to have appeased Pogba, who looks to be enjoying his football more under the Norwegian.

While on international duty, Pogba has spoken of the lure of Real Madrid but says for the moment he is happy with the situation at United.

"It's one of the biggest clubs in the world. I've always said Real Madrid is a dream club for every player," Pogba told a news conference in France.

"At the moment I'm happy in Manchester. I play. There's a new coach."

Pogba also believes Solskjaer would be fully deserving to keep the United job full-time after the current campaign.

"When a player is happy, he wants to keep being happy. Solskjaer deserves it. He knows the club, he knows everything about the club," he added.

"He is a really happy coach that gave confidence back to the players. This gave us the freedom to play and enjoy football again because maybe we lost that with the results we had before."

United are 12121/1 to finish in the top four this season.
