Manchester United were linked with a move to bring Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford earlier in the week, with reports claiming United are prepared to break the British transfer record. Now, the Frenchman could have just fuelled that fire somewhat.
In a recent interview, the 23-year old confirmed that he misses Manchester and it’s culture.
When asked about Manchester, Pogba replied:
“I really miss Manchester because it’s where I made the most of my teenage years and I had lots of friends there. It’s a different culture, I found they’re more open than French people. I was in digs with a family and they treated me like their son.”
Despite the fact that he did leave us in acrimonious circumstances, I’d take him back in a heartbeat. At the end of the day, he is one of the best midfielders on the planet and there is no denying that.
Now five years on, letting Pogba go was arguably one of the worst decisions that Sir Alex Ferguson ever made. He became unhappy due to the lack of playing time, and normally you’d tell him to be patient and wait for his chance. However, that season we saw the likes of Rafael get his chance on midfield…
In terms of a transfer fee, it would cost an astronomical amount to bring him back. If any club can afford to spend a large amount of money though, it’s Manchester United.
