Paul Pogba started his professional football career with Manchester United before he left Old Trafford for Juventus in 2012 as a teenager.

Having excelled in Juve, the France international returned to Manchester United for a world-record fee, and he is in his third year in his second stint at the club.

However, Pogba is now being linked with a move away from Manchester United, and was strongly linked with a move to Barcelona during the summer transfer window, but United refused letting go of the World Cup winner.

Rumours have now linked the 25-year-old with a return to Juventus, but Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici has denied such claims.

Paratici was asked about the speculation linking Pogba with Juventus and said on Thursday: “He is a Manchester United player.

“As long as he remains a Manchester United player, it’s best that I don’t talk about players at other clubs.”

United boss Jose Mourinho doesn’t have the best relationship with Pogba at the moment and has stripped Pogba of his captaincy.

Pogba was critical of United’s tactics in the 1-1 draw against Wolves.

Pogba said: “We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves. When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack. That’s Old Trafford. We are here to attack.

“I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake.

“Maybe the attitude should be better and we should play better because, again, we are at Old Trafford and we should just attack and press like we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal last season. When we play like this it’s easier for us.”
