Paul Pogba says he is ready for a “new challenge” in his career after three seasons at Manchester United.

The France international has been angling for a move away from Old Trafford for most of the past six months or so during a difficult 2018-19 Premier League season for both player and club.

Pogba has been heavily linked with a return to his former club Juventus in the 2019 summer transfer window less than three years since he completed an £89m switch to Manchester United from the Serie A champions.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is also thought to be eager to bolster his midfield with the addition of the Manchester United record signing after los Blancos finished a long way behind champions FC Barcelona last term.

And Pogba has now fuelled transfer speculation surrounding his future after the France international admitted that he is ready to call time on his Old Trafford career.

“There is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking as well,” Pogba is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“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.”

Pogba moved to Manchester United in a club record £89m deal from Juve in the 2016 summer transfer window following Jose Mourinho’s appointment as manager.

The France star has won the Europa League and the League Cup at Old Trafford but the versatile midfielder has been unable to fire Manchester United to Premier League glory.
