Pogba was re-signed by United in the summer of 2016 from Juventus for a then world record transfer fee of £89million.

He was the club's top scorer during the 2018/19 campaign, netting 16 goals in 47 appearances, but those stats don't tell the full story of his season. "For me I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great; some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody".

However, apart from a purple patch which coincided with the departure of Jose Mourinho in December and the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season, Pogba was criticized for largely underwhelming performances in big games as the team finished sixth in the league.

Pogba, 26, is under contract at Old Trafford until 2021.

Speculation that the World Cup-winning midfielder wants out of Old Trafford for a second time in his career has refused to die down since United's disappointing end to the season, with Real and former club Juventus both heavily linked.

Pogba is said to have convinced himself he'll be wearing Real Madrid's shirt next season, and is willing to kick and scream until he gets his own way.

Sunday's edition of Sport reports Pogba won't take "no" from the Glazers and has submitted some sort of transfer request.

"After everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well..."

Madrid-based Marca claimed earlier this week that the club were leaning on Pogba to force a move through away from Manchester United, hoping that it would in some way help negotiations progress ahead of the new season.

"I am thinking of this: To have a new challenge somewhere else", Pogba said. I am thinking of this: "to have a new challenge somewhere else".
