Paul Pogba has admitted that it is a dream of his to play for Real Madrid one day, while also admitting that there have been no talks with Manchester United over a new contract.

The 27-year-old has regularly been linked with a move away from Old Trafford since resigning for £89m in 2016. Pogba's contract expires next summer, but the Red Devils have the option to extend it by a year.

However, Pogba claimed that he has not had any discussions with the club yet.

"No-one has told me anything," he said at a press conference with the France national team on Thursday. "I have not spoken to [United executive vice-chairman] Ed Woodward. We haven't spoken about a new deal.

"At the moment, I am in Manchester and I am concentrating about getting back to my best form. I think there will be a moment when the club will come and talk to me and maybe offer me something, or not."

When asked about the prospect of a move to Real Madrid, with whom he has been linked countless times in the past, the Frenchman added, "All football players would love to play for Real Madrid. It is a dream for me, why not one day?

"I am in Manchester and I love my club. I am playing in Manchester, I'm having fun and I want to do everything to put the club where it deserves. I will give everything to the max, like my team-mates."

United have had a troubled start to the season, winning just one of their opening three league games. Their last game before the international break saw them hammered 6-1 at home by Tottenham to leave them 16th in the Premier League table.
