Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has questioned Manchester United's decision-making skills due to the club's reluctance to hand Paul Pogba a first-team role while he was plying his trade in England.

The 35-year-old veteran shot stopper believes the Premier League champions made an outrageous decision in allowing Pogba to join Juventus on a free transfer.

Buffon, speaking on Italian television, said on his Juventus teammate: "Pogba is one of those players who leaves you speechless.

"When he came we didn't know him but after only three or four training sessions we were impressed by his enormous qualities.

"My team-mates and me looked at each other as to say 'Are they blind in Manchester?' (to let him go away)."

Former Manchester United starlet Pogba is now seen as an important member of the Juventus and France squad.

The 20-year-old has gone from strength to strength since moving to the Serie A and is now recognised as one of the most gifted footballers on the planet.

Manchester United are crying out for a central midfielder who can both score and create goals, something which Pogba has been doing for Juventus since he sealed a move to Turin in 2012.

The Premier League champions have even been linked with making a move to re-sign Pogba for £40million - however any attempts of bringing the Frenchman back to Old Trafford are likely to be rejected due to his importance to the Serie A outfit.
