United last week confirmed world champion Pogba will leave Old Trafford on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the month.
Pogba cost United a then world record £89m when he returned to the club from Juventus in 2016, but the Frenchman has been largely underchallenged for the Red Devils.
The 29-year-old is now being linked with a second spell at Serie A giants Juventus, although European champions Real Madrid and French champions Paris Saint-Germain could compete with Juve.
Pogba shared an update on his transfer plans with the uninterrupted YouTube channel: “I only want what’s best for me.
“I think, put everything together, take my time and only look for the best. I want to play football, always be myself and enjoy what I do.
“I have to enjoy what I do because otherwise I can’t perform well. I don’t want to think negatively. We can lose games and trophies but you need to be happy and enjoying yourself – that’s what I’m looking for.
By the end of his second stint at Manchester United, some fans had turned against Pogba over his inconsistent performances and a perceived lack of desire.
The fact that the French midfielder had repeatedly toyed with the idea of a change did not help his cause.
However, many fans and pundits had sympathy for Pogba, viewing him as a world-class player but a victim of United’s recent struggles.
Pogba added: “Everyone wants to feel loved, everyone needs that in their soul to feel valued. Anything you do, even if you’re an adult, if you do something good, you like to hear “well done, beautiful”.
“It’s always been like that, adults need that too. It’s always good to feel that the work you do is appreciated, that you do a good job and that people are happy with themselves.
“I think the people around make a big difference because they can cheer you up or they can drag you down – it can be both – so you need them to pick you up again.
“Sometimes you just don’t feel, it can happen, just someone says, ‘It’s alright, it’s alright’, even the people who were on the bench give you a nudge, and it’s important, important, feeling it from your teammates because you can address it too.
“I like talking to people and being a leader, but even a leader sometimes needs the encouragement of his teammates, they have to educate him.
“As a leader, it helps your teammates realize their greatest potential. We can fight but it has to be for the good of the player and the team and he raises the level, brings the positive energy, people trust him, he trusts people.
“A leader doesn’t have to score, a leader can be on the pitch, doing his job right, pushing each other, sometimes you’re tired and you hear someone say, ‘come on, come back’, all that stuff, he goes he packs on, in the end we all win together, we need someone to push you and lift you up, when you’re down right now, you miss a chance in front of goal, you’re down and someone comes pat you on the back ‘you go to score, just get the energy up.”
Pogba made 226 appearances during his second spell at Old Trafford, with the highlight of his stint coming in 2017 when United won the Europa League and EFL Cup under Jose Mourinho.
