Paul Pogba admits to being “frustrated” over his injury struggles this season but insists his only thoughts are getting back together with his Manchester United team-mates. Pogba has long been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with multiple reports suggesting Juventus are considering taking him back to Italy.
Barcelona and Real Madrid have also been touted as possible destinations, with the latter expressing a strong interest last summer.
The France international remained at Old Trafford, but this season he has been hampered with ankle injuries.
Despite his time off the field though, Pogba has seen his name in headlines on a regular basis with his agent, Mino Raiola, making multiple public statements about his future.
Pogba has opted to stay quiet on rumours regarding his future at United, instead choosing to focus on getting back to full fitness.

He had been expected to make a return at some point this month, but the coronavirus pandemic has led to the season being suspended indefinitely.
Still, Pogba has had to largely watch from the sidelines with United battling for a top-four spot all season long.
He had to undergo surgery earlier in the year to fix the ankle problem, but Pogba insists he will be ready to return once the Premier League campaign is back up and running.
“I’m already training and touching the ball,” he said on Manchester United’s official podcast.

“I’ve been frustrated, a long time ago. Now I’m almost there, so I’m just thinking about getting back and training fully with the team and everything.
“You think bad but I’ve never had something like this in my career, so I always take it in a good way. It makes me more hungry to come back and do well. And, yeah, it just shows me as well how much I love football.
“You have to be very patient because, well my injury, I don’t know if people really know what happened.
“So I had a foot injury, which came in the game against Southampton. It was early this season and so I carried this for a long time, training and trying to be playing with it. After I stopped, I found I had a fracture.

”I had a cast on it, a plaster-cast, so it went very well but too well. The bone got bigger and so, when I came back again, I played those two games against Watford and Newcastle, I could feel something again.
“So I had to have an operation and now here I am. I don’t feel anything and, hopefully, I’ll be back very soon.“
United currently sit fifth in the table, three points behind Chelsea in the battle for a Champions League spot.
There has been no set date on when the Premier League could return though with the UK remaining in lockdown.
