Man United transfers: Paul Pogba won’t rejoin Red Devils, says Andrea Pirlo
Andrea Pirlo pours cold water on talk of Paul Pogba sealing a return to Manchester United
Andrea Pirlo has told Manchester United to forget about signing Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo.
The Red Devils continued to be linked with a big-money offer for the France international in the January transfer window.
Pogba was at his very best on Saturday as he scored a 60th-minute opener in the Serie A champions’ 2-0 win against Lecce.
However, Juventus midfielder Pirlo doubts Pogba will ever return to United despite the ongoing speculation.
“For whatever reasons they chose not to give him a chance – and that is a mistake they will have to live with now,” Pirlo is quoted as saying by Daily Mail.
“I can’t see that he (Pogba) will ever return to Manchester United.”
Pogba has scored six goals and has made one assist in 17 Serie A appearances this season.
The France star has also netted in the Champions League and Coppa Italia in the current campaign.
The 21-year-old quit Old Trafford for Juventus in 2013 after he failed to earn a first-team spot under Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Juve midfielder has won two successive Serie A titles since his move to the Turin outfit two-and-a-half seasons ago.
