Published Add your comment

As Juventus prepare for the biggest game in their club's recent history, Paul Pogba has been discussing his own career and talking in depth about his move from Manchester United, his future, his ideal team-mate and also this Saturday's show-down, reports the Daily Mail. 

The Italian champions will take on Spanish champions FC Barcelona on Saturday evening in the Champions League final in Berlin, and despite being massive underdogs, Pogba insists that Juve have a massive chance of becoming Champions League winners yet again.

Juve in Europe

The Old Lady are two-times Champions League winners, with the first coming back in 1985 and their last coming almost 20-years ago in 1996. Since then, Juve have been defeated in a final, but apart from that, have failed to make an impact on European football.

However, after beating Borussia Dortmund, AS Monaco and Real Madrid, Massimiliano Allegri's men are ready to stamp their name on European final once again by lifting their third Champions League trophy.

One of the main men at the Juventus Stadium is French midfielder Paul Pogba, and he's been talking in the media recently about all things football.

Pogba has discussed who his ideal team-mate is, whether he has regrets over his failed time in England and also what the future holds for himself now that he has become one of the world's best players.

The 22-year-old is heavily wanted across Europe, with several teams interested in signing him this Summer, including his former-side Manchester United, but the midfielder has insisted that Berlin might not be his last game for the Serie A side.

Pogba then continued and stated that he has no regrets about choosing to leave Old Trafford after failing to impress Sir Alex Ferguson during his youth days. The Frenchman left for free in 2012 and has since won three consecutive Serie A championships.

No Regrets

'I never said that the final in Berlin would be my last game (at Juventus). People can believe what they want.'

'Yes, for sure, I am happy with how my time has gone in Turin,' Pogba said. 'I don't regret it at all. I am very happy here and I enjoy it.

'I am in a Champions League final with Juventus, not Manchester, so things have worked out very well for me.'

When talking further about his future and also about Saturday's game, Pogba gave a special mention to Lionel Messi, and labelled him as the perfect team-mate.

He also dropped a massive hint about his own future by claiming that playing with the Argentinian would be a dream come true.

Messi Praise

'Playing with Messi would be a dream come true,' he is quoted as saying by AS.

'He's the best player in the world. I love watching Barcelona play, but I also love watching them lose. We know that we're not favourites but it's a final.

'We're going to give our all. We have nothing to lose and you never know what can happen.'
