Man Utd players’ verdict on Pogba after flirting with Real Madrid once again

Manchester United's stars remain in support of Paul Pogba despite his latest comments regarding a "dream" move to Real Madrid.

The French World Cup winner has faced an uncertain future at Old Trafford ever since pushing for a move to the Bernabeu last summer, though a potential switch failed to materialise.

And although Pogba has worked his way back into contention under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, after enduring an injury-hit 2019/20 campaign, it seems Pogba is still intent on joining Madrid.

Pogba's latest comments could have a potential impact on his popularity in the United dressing room, but apparently that isn't the case.

The Manchester Evening News has claimed that the Red Devils midfielder retains the support of his teammates despite his determination to leave the club.

It is also understood that the former Juventus star is still 'highly regarded' by players and staff, although officials believe his agent Mino Raiola is influential in the footballer's decision-making.

The midfielder's contract is due to expire in the summer of 2021, although the club have an option to extend it for a further year.

There was talk that he could soon sign a new long-term deal at United, but this has yet to materialise.

And speaking last week, ahead of his country's Nations League games, Pogba did little to play down the rumours he could be set for Los Blancos in the future.

When asked about the prospect of a move to La Liga, Pogba replied: "We have all heard these things that have been said. What to respond?

"Yes, all footballers would like to play for Real Madrid. Maybe it is a dream. It is a dream for me, why not one day."

Pogba did, however, also insist that for now his focus is fully on United, and he seems determined to help the team turn around their recent poor form.

"I am at Manchester," he continued. "We know that this has been spoken about a lot and I have not (spoken about it).

"I heard a lot of noise that I was going to leave and I was going to leave to clubs left and right. Today, I am still at Manchester United and I am fighting to try to take the club even higher."
