Paul Pogba drops Man United exit hint
Are these the quotes that Man United fans have been dreading?
As confirmed by BBC reporter Simon Stone on Sunday, Paul Pogba has said the following regarding his Man United future:
Pogba to reporters in Tokyo. “I have in Manchester 3 years; some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody. I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else.”

For the record, a longer Pogba quote was published in the Guardian:
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.

Is Pogba looking to force a move to Real Madrid?
Real Madrid’s interest in Pogba has been splashed over the papers in England and Spain for weeks.
Would Man United fans even mind if Pogba left the club?
Signed for over 100 million euros from Juventus, having previously left the club for free, Pogba’s form for United has lacked consistency.
Pogba, 26, is under contract at Old Trafford until 2021.
Marca recently reported that Zinedine Zidane has told Real Madrid that the only midfielder he wants this summer is Pogba.
Tomorrow’s Marca – «COMING WITH EVERYTHING FOR POGBA» – Madrid want to satisfy Zidane’s wishes and will use the rest of their efforts on Pogba, the price is high and United will make it tough, there are problems to face. Pogba is ready to lower his wages to get his Madrid move. pic.twitter.com/7KHMQYyMcE
