Manchester United star Paul Pogba got some fans mouth wide opened with his latest flirtation with Real Madrid last week.
The midfielder has made no secret of his “dream” to play for the LaLiga giants and reiterated that desire as he spoke to the press on international duty with France.
Pogba, who is out of contract at Old Trafford next summer, cast fresh doubt over his future as he admitted he has not yet held talks with Ed Woodward over triggering his one-year extension.
But the Frenchman has reportedly retained the support of his team-mates at Old Trafford after his most recent comments.
Manchester Evening News report that the 27-year-old remains a popular figure in the dressing room considered the best player at the club by many.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, some in the squad felt the World Cup winner should be allowed to leave.
There was a suggestion his head was not at Man Utd but he has had a fresh lease of life since returning from his long-term injury.
