Pogba urged to refind happiness by returning to Juventus

Former Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio believes Paul Pogba should return to the club in order to become “happy again” as he endures a tough spell at Man Utd.

The World Cup winner re-joined Man Utd in 2016 for £89m (€105m) after leaving the club for free in 2012 to move to the Italian side.

  • Although there have been fleeting moments of brilliance, Pogba’s career at United has never really ignited, with him constantly being linked with a move away, with either a transfer to Real Madrid or a return to Juve the most likely scenarios.

    Marchisio, a former team-mate of Pogba’s, hopes it is the latter, responding to a Tweet from the Frenchman by replying:

    “Please Paul Pogba – Come to Juventus….you will be happy again. Me too,”

    Earlier this season when on international duty with France, Pogba risked the ire of the Man Utd fans by revealing it was a “dream” of his to play with Real Madrid at some point.

    The player is currently with the French national team and he said a few days ago that being with his country was a breath of fresh air away from his troubles at Old Trafford.

    “I had never known such a difficult period in my career,” he said in an interview with RTL.

    “The France team is a breath of fresh air, the group is exceptional, it’s magic.”

    Pogba made 13 starts for United last season in the Premier League, scoring one goal and assisting a further three.

    He has started just four of United’s seven fixtures in the 2020/21 campaign.

    United have enjoyed a poor start to the new season in the league, winning just three of their opening seven games.
