Paul Pogba suggested on Sunday that he could be open to a move away from Manchester United , telling reporters in Tokyo that now “could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else”.
The midfielder is wanted by Real Madrid , where he would work with Zinedine Zidane, and by his former club Juventus .
“Like you said, there is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking as well,” Pogba, 26, said. “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, who moved to Old Trafford from Juventus for a then-world record £89.3m in August 2016, has seen José Mourinho replaced as coach by Ole Gunnar Solskjær during his time at the club.
Although inconsistent, the World Cup winner has scored 24 goals in 92 appearances for United and was named in last season’s PFA Premier League team of the year.
