Paul Pogba in a news conference said he remains happy at Manchester United even though he described Real Madrid as “a dream club for every player”.
The 26 year old said that new coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjær has rejuvenated the team and that has helped played a part in his decision making.
Podba’s Manchester United future appeared in doubt under former manager Jose Mourinho who left the club in December.
Solskjaer’s arrival coincided with an uplift in form for Pogba and other teammates , he scored four times in his first three games under the new boss.
The 46-year-old signed a deal until the end of the season but Pogba says he has done enough to get the job full-time. “Of course we want him to stay,” said Pogba, who is under contract until 2021.
“The results have been great. I have a great relationship with him; he has a great relationship with the players.
“When a player is happy, he wants to keep being happy. Solskjaer deserves it. He knows the club, he knows everything about the club.
“He is a really happy coach that gave confidence back to the players. This gave us the freedom to play and enjoy football again because maybe we lost that with the results we had before.”
When Mourinho was sacked, United were sixth in the Premier League, 11 points off fourth, but they are now fifth, three points behind third-placed Tottenham.
United have also progressed into the quarter-finals of the Champions League, after knocking out French champions Paris St-Germain in the last 16.
“We are better now and the results have been brilliant,” added Pogba.
“I like to talk about the future because that’s what matters, I don’t like to talk about the past. Maybe we lost confidence, maybe things went wrong. A lot of talking outside that we weren’t used to.”
