After spending three years in the acclaimed United youth academy, the youthful Pogba decided against continuing his development with United and moved to Juventus on a free transfer in June 2012.
Red Devils' fans were outraged that such a promising youth talent had been allowed to leave the club and speculation was rife that United had failed to offer him a suitable financial package.
Nearing two years on, former Manchester United chief executive, David Gill, has finally spoken out about the handing of Paul Pogba in an interview with United's Scandinavian Supporters' Club.
Gill stated that 'we offered him a very good wage, as well as a very generous fee for his agent', refuting the claims that his former club held back financially, before claiming that 'we were very disappointed' to see the player leave Old Trafford.
Pogba has excelled at Juventus since the move and has since been linked to a host of top European clubs interested in securing his services. Teams such as Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain being linked with the midfield-linchpin within recent times.
Interestingly, his former club United have also been rumoured to be interested in reclaiming the now-matured player.
While paying such a vast sum of money for a player that they let go only two years ago, this was under Sir Alex Ferguson's management, while his successor, David Moyes, sees the young Frenchman as the midfielder that United are in urgent need of.
