MANCHESTER UNITED legend Paul Ince has told Paul Pogba to 'move on' just weeks after the midfielder admitted it is his 'dream' to play for Real Madrid.
Pogba was once again on the bench at the weekend as United played out a dull 0-0 draw at home to Chelsea.
Fred and Scott McTominay bagged the anchoring spots in the midfield, with Bruno Fernandes just in front.
Pogba did play some part in the game as he replaced veteran Juan Mata on 58 minutes.
But Ince believes the time has come for the 27-year-old Frenchman to leave Old Trafford.

Speaking to beIN Sports, Ince said: "For him to be sitting on the bench and watching, with no disrespect, McTominay and Fred playing in his position, I would be saying, ‘I must be doing something wrong if I can’t get in this team'.
"I know he has had an injury, and he might be trying to bring him on a little later on. But I think it is time to move on.
"He has come out in the last two weeks and said he wants to join Real Madrid.
"I think his performances, since he has been here, have been inconsistent.
"Paul Pogba is a world-class player, and when he moved to Old Trafford, I thought [it would be] great. But all he has done is been a problem.
"The fans have gone against him and now Bruno Fernandes has come in and shown what you need to do to be a Manchester United player."
Days before the transfer deadline Pogba reiterated he 'dreams of playing for Real Madrid one day'.
The Frenchman, however, did insist he is happy at Old Trafford for now.
He said: "Yes, all footballers would like to play for Real Madrid. Maybe it is a dream. It is a dream for me, why not one day?
"As I have said, I am at Manchester United and I like my club."
Pogba has reportedly quit international football after comments from French president Emmanuel Macron alleging that Islam was the source of international terrorism.
The Manchester United star has allegedly made the decision following the remarks on Friday from his country’s leader.
That is according to various Middle Eastern news sources, but neither the 27-year-old, nor the French Football Association, has commented on the speculation.
