'I told Pogba not to go to United'

English Premier League

With Paul Pogba being linked with an exit once again, a former Juventus star reveals he advised the French star not to move to Manchester United in 2016.

Pogba was touted by many to become one of the world's best players during his time with the Italian giants after leaving the Red Devils in 2011 as a free agent.

The Frenchman rejoined United in 2016 and although he won two trophies in the first season, the midfielder's career has been hit by poor form and injury.

Claudio Marchisio played in midfield with Pogba at Juventus, but he now revealed he told the France international not to join the Manchester outfit.

"I told him that he was wrong to go to Manchester and that if he really wanted to change, he should choose Spain," Marchisio said, as per Daily Mail.

"Having said that, his return (to Juventus) would be extremely positive, Paul would be reborn in the environment he loves and pampers him the most.

"And he would give Juventus a lot as they need someone like him in the middle: he is a great professional."
