That is the opinion of MLS legendary journeyman and ESPN pundit Alejandro Moreno.
United star Pogba surprised many on Thursday when he openly admitted he was dreaming of a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid.
He told a news conference: “Real Madrid is one of the biggest clubs in the world.
“I’ve always said it is a dream club for every player.”
“That’s it, that’s all you have to say”

Pogba also confirmed he was still happy at Old Trafford, describing his relationship with Ole Gunnar Solskajer as “great.”
However, three-time MLS Cup winner Moreno thinks he opened a can of worms by failing to shut down rumours of a move to Real Madrid yesterday.
“Of course he could have [responded better], and should have,” Moreno said.
“I can sit in that press conference right now and I can tell you: ‘Look, things are great right now at Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s come in and really made a difference for me, I’m becoming the player that I think I can be at this club and I’m very happy here – thank you very much, take care, good night’.
Moreno’s comments on Pogba’s interest in joining Real Madrid comes amid news that:
“That’s it, that’s all you have to say.
“If this is his version of campaigning to possibly go to Real Madrid, I imagine that Paul Pogba has the power and the say to pick up the phone and get hold of Zinedine Zidane and actually have a direct conversation with him.
“Rather than put this out for us to chew on. He is experienced enough to know that these questions are going to come.
“They’re going to come and they’re going to keep coming.
“And the only way that you shut these questions down is by doing what I just exactly did.
“‘Look, I’m a Manchester United player and I’ll be a Manchester United player for the foreseeable future’.”
Pogba starts for France tonight as they get their Euro 2020 qualification campaign underway against Moldova.
