Paul Pogba has refused to rule out leaving Manchester United in the near future as the unsettled player continues to dominate transfer discussions.
United are adamant that Pogba will not be sold but they are likely to face a mounting battle to keep their French World Cup winner, with the player understood to have set his sights firmly on a move to Spain.
Speaking to Sky Sports Germany before France’s game with Germany in Munich on Thursday night, Pogba said: “There was a lot of talk about it [a transfer] but it was like that.
“I am under contract at Manchester [United].
“My future right now is with Manchester.
“I have a contract. Currently, I play there, but who knows what will happen in the next couple of months.”
Evening Standard reported that Pogba was persistently linked with a move away from Old Trafford during the summer transfer window, just two years on from £89.9m return to Old Trafford.
The France international has been almost ever-present in Jose Mourinho’s starting XI this season, captaining his side in the opening two matches of the new Premier League campaign but has done little to dampen speculation over his long-term future in Manchester.
And in an interview with Sky Germany ahead of France’s Nations League clash with Joachim Low’s side, the former Juventus midfielder has once again suggested a move could be on the cards.
“There was a lot of talks, but it was just like that, I am under contract in Manchester,” Pogba said of the summer speculation.
“My future is currently in Manchester, I still have a contract, I am playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months.”
