Pogba confirms Madrid rejection

Paul Pogba has confirmed Real Madrid attempted to sign him last summer but was ‘in my heart’ to return to Manchester United.

The French international joined the English giants in a €100m deal from Juventus in 2016, returning to the club whom he had left four years earlier.

“To be honest, Real Madrid came to me and I was thinking to go there, and I was thinking to go to Manchester United too,” Pogba told Beyond The Pitch.

“But I always felt it in my heart. My heart told me to come back here, I don’t know why, I didn’t know what was going to happen.

“But I did it, and I don’t regret it. I never regret my choice.”
