JUST IN - I’ll show you – Paul Pogba takes swipe at Manchester United
France World Cup winner Paul Pogba has said he wants to show Man United theymade a mistake by failing to extend his contract at Old Trafford.
Pogba is set to return to Juventus and will sign a four-year deal worth £68million, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport.
The midfielder has left Manchester United as a free agent this summer as his contract will expire at the end of the month.
He spent four years at Juventus before signing for Man United in a then-world record deal.
Speaking in The Pogmentary documentary, Pogba said: “My thought process is to show Manchester [United] that they made a mistake in waiting to give me a contract.
“ And to show other clubs that Manchester had made a mistake in not offering me a contract.”
Meanwhile, Manchester United were keen to tie Pogba down to a new contract in the second-half of last season, offering him at least two deals worth more than his current £290,000-a-week contract.
But the 29-year-old responded to his late agent Mino Raiola’s revelation of Man United’s contract offer last summer by saying he was offered ‘nothing’.
“How can you tell a player you absolutely want him and offer him nothing?” Pogba asks Raiola in the documentary, set to be released on Friday. “Never seen that.”
