Ex-Manchester United starlet reveals exit reasons

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson did not offer Paul Pogba an attractive enough contract to stay at Old Trafford, according to the Juventus star.

Pogba was one of the most highly-rated members of the youth set up at Manchester United, but moved to Serie A on a free transfer this summer after failing to agree a new deal with the Red Devils.

The 19-year-old hit the headlines in Italy on Wednesday night when he turned in an imperious performance for Juve against Bologna, scoring a winner deep into injury time to keep the Bianconeri top of Serie A.

After the game he spoke about his decision to leave Manchester United, citing discussions with Ferguson as being the final straw.

“I didn’t renew with them because I didn’t find a deal with Sir Alex Ferguson,” said the France Under-20 international.

“So I decided to accept the offer from the one team that was really interested in me, that being Juventus, and now I am very happy to be here.”

This was Pogba’s second league goal for Antonio Conte’s side since he left Old Trafford and he is improving rapidly as the weeks go by.

Such progress will undoubtedly have some United fans feeling more and more sick, especially as Ferguson’s current midfield is not exactly in the great shape.

The Scot will be hoping this is not a factor when his side welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon for a crucial Premier League clash.
