Jose Mourinho, it seems, is determined to bring Paul Pogba back to Manchester United this summer.
The French midfielder, one of the most sought-after footballers on the planet, left Old Trafford for Juventus back in 2012 and hasn’t looked back since.
However, Pogba has made no secret of the fact he’s still very fond of his former employers - despite his lack of first-team opportunities - and Mourinho appears to believe that United stand a genuine chance of luring the 23-year-old back to England.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Mourinho is so focused on bringing Pogba back to United that he vetoed the potential signing of Miralem Pjanic.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international completed a £25.4 million move from AS Roma to Juventus earlier this week, putting pen to paper on a five-year contract and increasing speculation that Pogba could leave Turin this summer.

According to the MEN, Mourinho has identified Pogba as the ‘captain’ midfielder to strengthen United’s spine, which was recently bolstered by the £30 million acquisition of centre-back Eric Bailly from Villarreal.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, meanwhile, will lead United’s attack after he completes his medical after Euro 2016.
