Paul Pogba has dropped a potential bombshell on his future by confessing it would be a “dream for anyone” to play for Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane.

The 26-year-old midfielder has been regularly linked with a move to La Liga in either Real or Barcelona for over 12 months now as things at Manchester United reached a boiling point under Jose Mourinho.

Pogba’s brother, Florentin, even confirmed in January that the French World Cup winner had the option to join either one of the Spanish giants in 2016 and that, if he were to leave United, then it would definitely be for either Real or Barca.

In 2016 though, Pogba felt he still had some unfinished business to attend to at Old Trafford and completed a then-world record transfer of €105m from Juventus.

And things have recently picked up for Pogba at United ever since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker manager until the end of the season, where the club’s record signing has begun to display the kind of performances that are expected of him.

Despite this upturn in fortunes, it turns out that Pogba still finds the prospect of playing for Real to be a tempting one especially now that Zidane is back as manager again.

“As I’ve always said, Real Madrid is a dream for anyone. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world,” said Pogba,” according to Daily Mirror.

“There is also [Zinedine] Zidane as a coach and it’s a dream for anybody who likes football.

“For now, I’m at Manchester. We don’t know what the future holds. I’m at Manchester and I’m happy.”

Pogba is currently away on international duty for France, where he will be expected to start in their Euro 2020 qualification opener at Moldova on Friday in Group H.

The world champions will then host Iceland in Paris three days later for their next match.
