Paul Pogba has been urged by former United midfielder, Jasper Olsen, to leave if he doesn't want to play for the club.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and recently heightened speculations when he confessed his dream of playing for the European Champions and his love for their manager, Zinedine Zidane.

Zidane reciprocated the favour some days later, claiming that there are only a “few players who bring as much as Pogba does.”

The former France captain also opened the door for a move to the Bernabeu in the future to his countryman when his experience at Manchester is over.

Pogba was reportedly close to leaving the Red Devils earlier in the season following a fall-out with former manager, Jose Mourinho. But the 26-year-old made a U-turn after Solskjaer was appointed and transformed the team's fortune.

United are now in the last 8 of the Champions League and very much in the race for top four but that has not stopped the World Cup winner being linked with a move away.

"I think in the old days Ferguson was the same," Olsen told Omnisport.

"If you don't want to play for the club then don't stay! And I think that's the case too with Pogba.

"Of course you would continue without him but it would be great to see him stay as well because he is an important part of the team."

If Pogba leaves United, it would be the second time he is leaving the club, having done so as a teenager when he left to join Juventus before returning in 2016 for a record fee.
