Juventus legend Claudio Marchisio has revealed he told Paul Pogba not to sign for Manchester United in 2016 because it was ‘not the right move for his career’.

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.

Marchisio was always wary of his friend’s move to United and urged him to consider a return to Turin.

‘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 Sportsmail. ‘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.’
