Manchester United made a huge mistake in letting Paul Pogba leave the club to join Juventus two years ago, according to Louis Saha.

The France international has become one of the most-coveted midfielders in Europe after impressing for the defending Serie A champions since joining on a free transfer from United back in 2012.

It’s clearly one of their biggest mistakes

And former United striker Saha is sure that the Red Devils will be regretting their decision to let the 21-year-old leave Old Trafford for Italy.

“It’s not often I will criticise Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson but it’s clearly one of their biggest mistakes,” Saha told talkSPORT.

“He’s clearly a talent. He’s a confident player and he’s always trying to improve. He’s got a lot of aggression but he’s got so much potential to improve.

“He’s been very important for France and showed in the last game [a 2-0 win over Nigeria] he can score goals and he can dictate the midfield area.

“He was very strong in his desire to go forward and he is a great box-to-box player. He reminds me of Patrick Vieria but maybe with a bit more style.”

Pogba scored seven goals and made seven assists in 36 Serie A appearances for Juve last season.
