Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has ‘some regrets’ over his return to Old Trafford and believes he should have move to Real Madrid instead, according to reports in France.
France international Pogba rejoined the Red Devils in 2016 for a then world-record fee of £89.3million from Juventus .
And while his first campaign went fairly well, with EFL Cup and Europa League glory, the second season has been more tumultuous.

Manchester City’s dominance in the Premier League has put pressure on manager Jose Mourinho and now Pobga’s dip in form is also increasing scrutiny on the club.
Mourinho dropped the 24-year-old against Huddersfield recently, but another poor showing against Newcastle saw him substituted after 66 minutes last weekend.
The pair were also seen in a heated debate during the 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley and it appears Pogba now wants a more attacking role in the side, having been forced to defend more in a central pairing with Nemanja Matic .
And reports in L’Equipe now suggest the £89.3m man has some regrets over his decision to return to the Premier League, while it also states the player had never hidden his initial attraction to Real Madrid’s overtures.
