Things have worked for me after leaving United: Pogba
Midfielder Paul Pogba has insisted he was right to leave Manchester United for Juventus after saying that Saturday’s Champions League final against Barcelona justifies his decision to walk out of the English Premier League (EPL) club.
French international Pogba has emerged as one of the most highly rated youngsters in the game since moving to Turin in the summer of 2012 following a contract stand-off with United, reports telegraph.co.uk.
And having become a key figure in Massimiliano Allegri’s team, which won a fourth successive Serie A title this season, the 23-year-old is now at the centre of a 60 million euros race for his signature involving Real Madrid, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and United.
"Yes, for sure, I am happy with how my time has gone in Turin," Pogba said. "I don’t regret it at all. I am very happy here and I enjoy it.
"I am in a Champions League final with Juventus, not Manchester, so things have worked out very well for me."Barcelona are understood to be frontrunners to sign Pogba -- the Spanish champions are prepared to strike a deal this summer. City are prepared to pay Juventus’s asking price for the <g data-gr-id="31">player,</g> while Real are determined to bolster their squad after ending the season trophyless and having sacked manager Carlo Ancelotti. But with uncertainty in his future, Pogba claims he will not allow anything to distract him before Saturday’s game.
‘Playing with Messi would be a dream come true’
Paul Pogba on Tuesday admitted that he dreams of playing alongside Barcelona star striker Lionel Messi. The Frenchman has long been linked with a move away from Turin, with both Barcelona and Real Madrid said to be very interested in him. Pogba now spoke of his admiration for Barcelona, his side’s Champions League final opponents on Saturday. “Playing with Messi would be a dream come true. He’s the best player in the world. I love watching Barcelona play, but I also love watching them lose. We know that we’re not favourites but it’s a final,” Pogba was quoted as saying by goal.com. “We’re going to give our all. We have nothing to lose and you never know what can happen.” Despite his admiration for Barcelona, Pogba emphasised that he had no immediate plans to leave his club in the summer. “I never said that the final in Berlin would be my last game. People can believe what they want,” the 22-year-old concluded.
