Manchester United and Paul Pogba has certainly been an interesting one. The Frenchman left Old Trafford under Sir Alex Ferguson, before returning when Jose Mourinho took the reigns.
It’s fair to say that the self-proclaimed Special One and the midfielder haven’t seen eye-to-eye recently, and there has been much talk that the 25-year-old could be looking to leave Old Trafford in the not too distant future.
The Red Devils have received a boost in that regard, though, with his former employers, Juventus, ruling out any potential move to bring the midfielder back to Turin.
It comes straight from the horse’s mouth, as their transfer negotiator, Fabio Paratici, has said that they haven’t even thought about bringing him back.
“We love him very much,” Paratici is quoted as saying by The Peoples Person.
“We’re connected to him, but we’ve never thought about it and we’re not going to think about it.”
Pogba’s best domestic football came with the Old Lady. He has always been brilliant for his country, but at United, the consistency issues have been obvious.
He and Mourinho haven’t seen eye-to-eye recently, but I’m not sure that is having a direct impact on his football. I thought he was brilliant against Newcastle United on Saturday, particularly in that second-half as he sat deeper, which allowed him to really assess the field and pick the right passes.
Thankfully one club has said that a move for Pogba will not come to fruition, but you can bet your bottom dollar that some other European powerhouses will still be sniffing around…
