Andrea Pirlo insists that he would not be surprised to see Paul Pogba leave Manchester United and return to Juventus.

The French midfielder’s situation at Old Trafford has been a constant source of speculation in recent months due to his inconsistent form under Jose Mourinho.

Pogba was regularly criticised for failing to produce consistent performances for the Red Devils last season but he was in fine form as he helped France to win the World Cup in Russia this summer.

There have been reports of a falling-out between Mourinho and Pogba in recent months, but the midfielder has remained at Old Trafford for the time being.

Now, former Juventus star Pirlo is claiming that he would not be surprised to see the 25-year-old midfielder end up back at the Italian club in the future.

Speaking to Tuttosport, Pirlo said: “Would I be surprised?

“No, the opposite, I would not be surprised to see Paul at Juventus.”

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils are looking to make it back to back wins in the top flight for the first time this season after they lost two and won two of their opening four Premier League games.
