It is understood that Pogba is "serious" about pushing through a move to Madrid and his agent, Mino Raiola, has been actively searching for the midfielder's next club for some time.
Meanwhile, Manchester United's interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly offered Pogba a contract extension, but Pogba is said to have rejected the offer as he "wanted time to think" on his next move, as per Express. "I play there now but we'll see what will happen in the future".
"But I'm not concerned about his Real Madrid quotes this week".
"He was just enjoying being in Manchester and was good friends with the first team and when you're happy you're settled".
Pogba's flirting with other clubs was previously understandable given what he was going through before under Jose Mourinho's management.
The outlet says that the France global remains determined to move on in the summer despite his, and his team's, improved performances under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since Jose Mourinho was sacked in December. We live in a world where you can say what you want and I can imagine the words being taken out of context.
The midfielder has won La Liga and three Champions League titles since his £27 million move to Madrid from Bayern.
Certainly, transfer flirting to command a bumper new deal is not a new tactic in modern football and United chiefs will be well aware that their best player has grounds to demand fresh terms that are more in line with his overall importance to the club.
