Marchisio: I told Pogba not to leave Juventus for Man Utd

Claudio Marchisio says former Juventus teammate Paul Pogba should never have left for Manchester United.

Marchisio played with Pogba from 2012-2016 before the Frenchman sealed a club record £89million move back to Old Trafford.

The Frenchman’s second spell at United has been a frustrating one and he is set to leave when his contract expires this summer.

“He [Pogba] is the player that impressed me the most for the huge evolution that he had in Juventus because he arrived as a boy,” Marchisio told the Daily Mail.

“Me, [Arturo] Vidal and [Andrea] Pirlo immediately understood his enormous potential and that’s what he showed.

“We also became friends and as a friend I told him that Manchester United couldn’t be the right solution for him, the right choice. Not because of the team, it’s a great team, but because of the moment of his career.

“In terms of a return to Juventus, as a friend, I would be so happy to see him again at Juventus.

“It would be good for the club, I would suggest him to come back. But it’s up to him and the club to decide.”
