Jesse Lingard is clearly thrilled to see Paul Pogba back at Manchester United...

Jesse Lingard has taken to social media to reveal his delight at seeing Paul Pogba return to Manchester United this week.

The France international finally put an end to the speculation about his future by signing a five-year contract with the Red Devils on Tuesday.

United had been relentlessly linked with a move to bring Pogba back to the club throughout the summer and the 23-year-old will now prepare for his first season under Jose Mourinho.

Lingard and Pogba played together in United’s youth set-up before the Frenchman left United to join Juventus in the summer of 2012.

And Lingard was quick to take to social media to welcome Pogba back to Old Trafford ahead of the start of the new Premier League campaign.

Lingard posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Wait on it…..welcome home @paulpogba #firstneverfollows #manchesterunited #adidasuk”
