- Paul Pogba has revealed why he chose a return to Manchester United over Real Madrid
- The French midfielder said his heart preferred a return to Old Trafford
- Pogba was a huge miss in the Manchester derby defeat on Sunday, December 10
Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, has explained why he snubbed Real Madrid in favour of a move to the Red Devils at the start of last season.
Pogba, 24, who was a product of Manchester United academy was the subject of interest from Real Madrid after impressing at Juventus where he completed a world record-breaking £89 million move back to Manchester United.
Speaking on the Beyond the Pitch podcast, Pogba opened up about the summer of 2016, where he confirmed the Spanish giants actually approached him.
He said: "To be honest, Real Madrid came to me and I was thinking to go there, and I was thinking to go to Manchester United too,"
"But I always felt it in my heart. My heart told me to come back here, I don't know why, I didn't know what was going to happen.
"But I did it, and I don't regret. I never regret my choice."
Pogba made 51 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United last season, as the club won both the EFL Cup and Europa League.
In 2017, he has become an integral part of the Red Devils team, and was a huge miss in the Manchester derby defeat on Sunday, December 10.
