Massimiliano Allegri: Paul Pogba belongs to Juventus

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has urged Paul Pogba to snub Manchester United for the chance of winning the Champions League.

The 23-year-old has been continuously linked with a £105 million wold record transfer back to Old Trafford after developing into one of the hottest talents in the world.

He has suggested Man United are his first family while asked in an interview on holiday and is expected to return to pre-season training on August 7.

Speaking about a deal, Allergi insists he is not worried about the English rumours.

“I am calm about the English rumours,” he said.

“Anyone who has the opportunity to leave Juventus has to consider things very carefully, because right now Juve are among the top four European clubs.

“This is not a selling club that just lets its players go. Pogba belongs to Juve and at the end of the day he too will want to win another Scudetto and hopefully the Champions League.”

Pogba would be an incredible signing for Man United, he will only develop as he ages and will undoubtedly help any side contest for silverware.

Jose Mourinho has signalled his intent to build a world-class squad with the acquisitions of Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Portuguese boss stated in his first press conference as United boss that he is still working on completing a deal for his fourth signing and it looks like he has some work to do if he wants to persuade Allegri to let go of his star asset.
