Man United's Paul Pogba explains how Neymar will help improve his game

Last summer, Paul Pogba arrived back on English shores with a huge amount of expectation placed on his broad shoulders.

The French midfielder had enjoyed a fruitful four-year spell with Juventus and decided to move back to Manchester United in a £89m deal.

Sadly, Pogba's first season under the leadership of Jose Mourinho did not exactly go to plan with many suggesting that he was not the player who had shone in Serie A.

Towards the latter stages of 2016/17 and in the Europa League final, the French international finally showed what he was capable of, a complete midfield entity with an outrageous display of passing.

This season, Pogba has kicked off in style, starring in the Red Devils' 4-0 win over West Ham where he scored the fourth and final goal.

Alongside new arrival Nemanja Matic, he looked comfortable and free to exert his obvious talent.

However, Pogba believes a man who does not aid him on the Old Trafford pitch could help improve his game in 2017/18.

The Frenchman believes the £197m fee forked out by Paris Saint-Germain for Neymar will now mean people focus on his footballing talent rather than his expensive fee.


“Last season the first question from everyone was always all about the price tag," Pogba told Manchester Evening News.

"Now everyone is asking about the football. That tells you everything."

The Brazilian superstar's fee more than doubled the £89m paid for Pogba and the current financial state of football should draw a lot of attention away from the Frenchman.


Many pundits believe this season is the one for Pogba to win United the title and the Frenchman is hungry to do so.

“I came here to win the Premier League and to challenge myself as well. Winning the Premier League is what matters,” he said.

“My dream was to play for this club and when I finished (in 2012) I always felt like I had missed something at Manchester United because I wasn't a first XI player.


“Now I'm back and happy to be back. I grew up a lot in Italy and I have come back as a man.”
