Paul Pogba wants to leave Manchester United and Real Madrid need him, according to the player’s brother.
Mathias Pogba was a guest on Spanish television programme, El Chiringuito, and was asked about the midfielder’s future, who earlier in the summer admitted it might be time for a change of scenery.

“Paul wants to move. In the team he is in now, he can’t do everything,” he said.
“If [Real manager Zinedine] Zidane doesn’t have the things he wants, it’ll be difficult for him.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has previously insisted the midfielder remains committed to the club he joined for £89million in 2016.
Pogba played the entire 90 minutes against Chelsea in the 4-0 Premier League win, but with the transfer window in Spain not closing until 2 September, there is still time for a deal to be struck.
“I can’t guarantee you that Paul will be at Man United. Until 2 September, anything can happen,” the older Pogba brother, who plays for Spanish fourth division side Manchego, continued.
“It’s not impossible for [Real president Florentino Perez] to sign Paul. Anything is possible.”

Asked which player Zidane is missing from his line-up, he said it was the World Cup winner, though did say he wasn’t worth £180m fee being mentioned.
Pogba’s brother is not the only member of his entourage to talk up a transfer.
In July, the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, told talkSPORT he was hopeful of the player being granted his wish to leave.
“[Pogba] has done nothing wrong,” he said.
“He has been respectful and professional in every way and always.
“The club has known his feeling for a long time.
“It is a shame other people only like to criticise without the right information, and I am also sorry that the club does not take any position against this.
“Hopefully there will be soon a satisfying solution for all parties.”
