Real Madrid target Pogba will stay at Man Utd for years - Berbatov

Former Manchester United star Dimitar Berbatov believes Paul Pogba will be at the club "for a long time".

The France international sparked talk of an exit this week after admitting it would be a dream to play for Real Madrid.

But Berbatov does not believe the comments reflect Pogba's desire to leave Old Trafford.

He said: "Paul Pogba is rarely too far away from the headlines but I'm not concerned about his Real Madrid quotes this week.

"I supported lots of other teams when I played for United because I was a fan of good football. I admired clubs like Real Madrid, Juventus, Bayern Munich.

"I don't think there is anything to worry about here. We live in a world where you can say what you want and I can imagine the words being taken out of context.

"Paul will be a United player for a long time, as long as he and the club want to be together."
