Speaking to The Guardian, Pogba said that that it could be time to secure a fresh challenge elsewhere amid the speculated interest from Real Madrid, he told: “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. I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else. I am thinking of this: to have a new challenge somewhere else.”
