Pogba is believed to be on Real boss Zinedine Zidane’s radar after scoring 16 goals and registering ten assists last season.

Speaking to reporters in Tokyo, the midfielder said: “Like you said, there is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking as well.

“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 rejoined Manchester United in a then-world record £89million deal from Juventus in 2016.

During that time, some of his performances have led to criticism from his own fans and Old Trafford legends Roy Keane, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes.

Despite having his best scoring campaign last term, Pogba failed to find the net from open play in his final 15 games of the season.

The 26-year-old has teased a move to Real Madrid in the past, admitting it would be a ‘dream’ to play at the Bernabeu under Zidane.
