Paul Pogba insists he is fit enough to make his second Manchester United debut against Southampton on Friday night.
The Frenchman cost Man United £89 million which surpassed the fees paid for Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo, making him the most expensive player in the world.
Fans were exited to see Pogba in action, but after a one match ban carried over from his time at Juventus, he was left to watch Man United’s 3-1 victory over Bournemouth from home.
Speaking about his plans, Pogba claims the objective is for Man United to win the Premier League.
“You have to ask the manager, but I feel very good and have been training for 10 days. I am okay,” he said.
“I am quite used to this. I played the World Cup two years ago when at Juve and three years ago I was at the U20 World Cup as well. So I am okay. It is about your body and I have been training on my holidays.
“I am just happy to play football, I don’t even think about it.
“My ambition is always be the the No 1 and be the best. So the objective is to win the league. We want to go back to the Champions League because that is where we belong.”
Pogba’s arrival at Man United is a message of intent from Mourinho, he has always wanted to forget the last three years at the club and there isn’t a better way to do so than to win the Premier League.
The Portuguese boss has also completed deals for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly, which will provide the club with the best possible chances of challenging for silverware.
Pogba will help take the club to the next level and his energy in midfield could be something Man United benefit from for the next decade.
