Paul Pogba comments suggest Man United transfer not on the cards

Paul Pogba does not seem to be keen on a return to Manchester United any time soon...

Paul Pogba looks to have ruled out a transfer back to Manchester United by claiming that his previous spell at Old Trafford was like “being on holiday”.

The France international has developed into one of Europe’s most highly-rated midfielders since joining Juventus after he was deemed to be surplus to requirements at Manchester United by then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Pogba’s rise at Juve has inevitably resulted in speculation linking him with a host of Europe’s top club’s, with United touted as a possible destination for the midfielder.

However, the player himself has now taken a not-so-subtle dig at his former employers, suggesting that he is not keen on a move back to United.,

Pogba is quoted as saying by Metro: “There is a different culture of work compared to elsewhere. I was at Manchester – it seemed like being on holiday.

“Here we work so much. All these titles, we did not steal them. It was by working right to the end.”
