Over the past few days, there’s been a lot of talk about Paul Pogba and his future at Manchester United.

Normally, it’s all about his contractual situation, since he hasn’t renewed at Old Trafford and is free to speak to other clubs about a free transfer, but this week has been about his mental health.

This is because the player revealed in an interview with Le Figaro that he had suffered bouts of depression during his second spell at Manchester United, which started when José Mourinho was in charge.

Whether he continues with the Red Devils remains to be seen, but what is certain is that the midfielder thoroughly enjoys international breaks when he gets called up to the France national team, something he has spoken about in the past.

The Manchester United midfielder sat down with Téléfoot for an interview that will be broadcast on Sunday morning, and the TV show’s Twitter account released a snippet that sees the star asked whether the opportunity to step away from club football and be with the France group when things in England aren’t going well was a ‘breath of fresh air’.

He replied: “Absolutely. You have to speak the truth. Yes, it’s true that there have been moments, especially in Manchester, when there was a need for this break to regain this energy, this confidence.”

There will undoubtedly be more to come from this interview, since it promises discussions about his future and his struggles at Manchester United.
