Pogba drops massive Manchester United transfer hint after big Ronaldo admisson
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted ‘it would be a pleasure’ to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, amid Juventus speculation.
Pogba has one again been in the transfer headlines throughout the course of this season, with reports suggesting that Jose Mourinho is fed up of seeing the Frenchman under-perform for his side and is ready to cash in this coming January in a bid to raise funds for his own potential targets.
And one club that has been strongly linked with a potential deal is that of Juventus, who Pogba left United for back in 2014 to become one of the most talented midfielders in world football.
Now he has fuelled talk of a return to Turin by announcing that it would be a pleasure to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined the Italian champions in the summer following a trophy-laden nine-year spell at Real Madird and has made an immediate impact in Turin, scoring seven goals in his last 10 matches in all competitions.
Pogba was quoted on the Calciomercato website: ‘I thought it was a great purchase by Juventus: having Cristiano is always good for the team, playing with great players like him, Messi or Neymar is always a pleasure.
“I think he’s happy to be here and I think it’s a great thing for Juve to have a player who scores goals like drinking water.’
Will Pogba be a United player for much longer? Here is what we think.
Pogba is a man that is very unhappy with the way Mourinho plays the game, and will jump ship as soon as the opportunity arises in the coming transfer windows, so no he will not be at the club for the long-term.
He has ambitions to win everything the game has to offer, and the way United are playing right now and the constant transfer speculation surrounding a number of players at the club, they are further away this season than they were last year.
Juventus would love Pogba back and the Frenchman would love to head back to the club that helped him become a world class midfielder, it will just be a case of how much United will demand for his departure.
