Former Juventus playmaker, Andrea Pirlo, has said the Italian club is still laughing at Manchester United, for allowing Paul Pogba leave Old Trafford for free and join them in 2012.
Pogba signed for Juventus for only £800,000 and spent four trophy-filled years in Turin, before heading back to United thissummer in a world-record £89.5m deal.“On the first training session Pogba had with Juventus, the players were laughing,” Pirlo told the Telegraph.
“We were not laughing for any other reasonthan we were just in total disbelief that thisplayer with so much obvious ability was able to leave the club the size of Manchester United for free – and I think Juventus are still laughing.
“I will always remember that first day he trained at Juventus. He was only young butwe could see he was special.”
Pirlo, who now plays for New York FC in theMajor League Soccer, however believes Pogba will be a success in England.
“I think Pogba will make Manchester United a real force again. One player of that quality can change things,” he added.
“They will lift the players, the fans. You giveany team Pogba and Zlatan in one window and they are capable of special things.”
