Juventus midfielder, and former Manchester United player Paul Pogba has ruled out a potential return to Old Trafford, citing grievances with Sir Alex Ferguson as his reason.

The Frenchman, 20, is annoyed at the treatment he received from the former United boss, who he believes failed to give him a fair chance. The on-going presence of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United is believed to be preventing a chance of any return for Pogba.

Ferguson was apparently unimpressed by demands made by the Frenchman and his agents, with Pogba rejecting the offer of a new contract before moving to Italy to join Juventus.

David Moyes was in Italy to watch the match between Juventus and Cagliari, and it was rumoured that he was watching Pogba, with the intention of bringing him back to Manchester United.

This latest development will come as a blow to the Manchester United boss, who has struggled to bring in additional midfield quality since his arrival in the summer.

Moyes has been rebuffed in his efforts to sign numerous midfielders, such as Thiago Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas, whilst his sole summer signing, Marouane Fellaini, has struggled to make any impression.

And although Pogba's lack of enthusiasm is a blow for the struggling manager, he is still rumoured to have his eye on several other targets, including Pogba's team mates Arturo Vidal and Claudio Marchisio.

Manchester United are struggling this season, and are currently languishing in seventh place, eleven points behind league leaders Arsenal, and Moyes will be desperate for reinforcements to turn his side's fortunes around.
