Paul Pogba has described his return to Manchester United in 2016 as “the best feeling ever”.

The France international completed a club record £89m move to Manchester United from Serie A champions Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window.

Pogba returned to the Old Trafford outfit having left to join Juventus as an untested teenager for the modest sum of £800,000 four years earlier under Sir Alex Ferguson.

The 25-year-old moved back to Manchester United as a four-time Serie A winner and a Champions League runner up to establish himself as one of Europe’s leading midfielders.

Pogba has struggled for consistency since linking up with Jose Mourinho’s squad despite getting his hands on the Europa League and League Cup trophies.

His relationship with Mourinho has been strained on a number of occasions over the past two and a half seasons to raise questions about his future at the 20-time English champions.

But Pogba has spoken of his continued love for the 20-time English champions, which will soothe concerns of Manchester United supporters.

“When I came back to United, it was the best feeling ever,” Pogba told Man United’s website.

“I came back home. I always dreamed of playing for United, to have many games and score goals. Nothing had really changed, except for maybe the team and the manager, but the rest of the club was the same.

”I just came back home, it was like I didn’t really leave – I just went on holiday! [laughs]. It was a great feeling to come back home.”

While the Manchester United club record signing hasn’t been unable to win top honours at Old Trafford since his return to the club, Pogba has achieved remarkable success with France.

Indeed, the versatile Red Devils midfielder got on the scoresheet in France’s 4-2 victory over Croatia in the World Cup final in Russia in the summer.
