Paul Pogba claims he has no regrets over his decision to swap the Premier League for Serie A.

The French midfielder arrived at Juventus from Manchester United during the 2012 summer transfer window.

Pogba has been in impressive form in Serie A, particularly since the start of the new campaign.

United's failure to land a number of midfield talents over the summer, despite securing the signature of Marouane Fellaini on deadline day, has highlighted the loss of losing the promising youngster to Juve.

The Frenchman has struck seven times for Juventus in 52 matches but is yet to open his account in the Champions League.

Pogba insists he has no regrets about swapping Manchester for Turin and it is the perfect place for him to evolve into a world class player.

The 20-year-old told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "Why did I choose Italy? Serie A is the university of football, especially at a tactical level.

"A midfielder who hits the big time in Italy can really aspire to become the best in the world in his role.

"And then it was Juventus who called me, and they are one of the biggest clubs in the world.
I'm lucky to have found Antonio Conte on my way. He improves me every day, I could not ask for anything better as a teacher."

Pogba believes it would be stupid to promise he will be at Juventus for the rest of his career but admits he is more than happy with life in Turin.

"The fans fear losing me? But I'm not anybody yet. I look at Andrea Pirlo and Gianluigi Buffon, and I learn from true champions," said Pogba.

"Juventus for life? Promises like these have no sense, because you cannot know what there will be in the future.

"I look at the present and I say I'm fine here in Turin, I love everything about Juventus - the managers, the coach, my team-mates and the fans.

"At the moment I don't see myself anywhere but Juventus."

The midfielder played 19 games for Manchester United and says he basis his game on two Premier League midfielders.

"Yaya Toure and Abou Diaby, I'm very similar to them," said the Frenchman.

"The strongest midfielder in the world? Except my team-mates, it is a struggle between Yaya Toure and Andres Iniesta."

Pogba is currently with the France squad ahead of Tuesday's 2014 World Cup qualifier against Finland.
