PAUL POGBA IVAN RAKITIC PHILIPPE COUTINHO

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has all but confirmed an exit to Real Madrid after publicly admitting a desire to take on a new challenge elsewhere.

At the weekend, the French midfielder suggested he was looking for a "new challenge" and could seek to leave Old Trafford this summer.

Paul Pogba is on the back page of nearly every newspaper today and The James Gray Show was dominated by talk of the Manchester United midfielder.

The 2018-19 season turned out to be a damp squib for Manchester United.

Toni Kroos looked a shadow of a player who has dominated Spanish and European football for years while Luka Modric is evidently in the twilight of his career.

Madrid are understood to be interested in Pogba as well but nothing has materialised as of yet. Speaking to reporters in Japan, the 2018 World Cup victor said he thinks it could be a good time for a new challenge.

Thankfully, though Samsung's virus scan process is sadly not automated, the procedure is actually pretty simple. Update (12pm ET): Samsung has now deleted the somewhat controversial tweet.

"For me I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great; some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody", Pogba said, according to ESPN.

"I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else", the Frenchman said in comments which have been reported by papers such as "The Guardian".

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

Madrid know that it will not be easy, that the time scale set is short and that United will not let Pogba leave easily, but the Frenchman's comments have brought optimism in Madrid.

Although Pogba still has two years left on his contract at United, if the club want to make back the fee they paid Juventus, they will have to sell him before his contract expired or risk letting him go for free in the future.
