Didier Deschamps asked about Paul Pogba to Real Madrid transfer rumours
Ahead of the June international break, France coach Didier Deschamps was asked about the transfer speculation surrounding Paul Pogba, noting that he would offer his advice to the player if he sought it.
Pogba has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window and has flirted with club noting that a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu would be a 'dream move'. But his appearance in United's new kit marketing allayed some fans' fears, with the Red Devils, understood to prioritize other players when it comes to selling this summer.
After naming his squad, Deschamps was asked about Pogba's future, "I am not here to advise them. I can given them my view, but they have people, advisers, it is their career. What's important is that when a player makes a big decision, he believes in it."
United signed Pogba for a world record fee in 2016 and he is effectively approaching the halfway point on a six-year contract since United have the option of an additional year to tie Pogba to the club until 2022.
