The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has been heavily linked with a move to Los Blancos over the past year, with speculation on the increase after both Pogba and Real coach Zinedine Zidane spoke of their admiration for one another recently.

Having previously revealed that a transfer to the 13-time Champions League winners would be a "dream", Pogba was once again asked about a potential move to Spain after his team's loss at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

When asked if he would be keen on facing the Blaugrana in a UCL El Clasico, the 26-year-old was diplomatic with his answer.

"When we play the Champions League, it's always nice to play against Barca, it's a dream for anyone," he told El Chiringuito TV.

The 2013 Golden Boy winner was then asked directly about potentially donning the Real jersey. 

"I won't answer that. I will only speak about the game, nothing else."
