Paul Pogba could be playing in the Premier League next season, with Manchester United reportedly preparing a £100 million bid for the Juventus star.

The 23-year-old is the most-sought after midfielder in the world, with United and Real Madrid going head-to-head to make him the most expensive footballer in history.

Where Pogba ends up isn’t clear, but United are the only ones hoping he decides to return to the Premier League.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has admitted it would be “great” for Pogba to move to England and revealed just how good the player can become.

According to Henry, the sky is the limit for the Frenchman.

One of the best

“Forget about France, I think he can be one of the best midfielders in history," Henry told Sky Sports.

"He has the quality to do that. He needs to make sure he concentrates on what he can do well.

"What I love about him at the moment is that he's doing what the team's asking him to do; maybe he's sometimes a bit more fancy at Juventus but because Antoine Griezmann is playing behind Giroud for France, he has to defend a bit more.

"That's the sign of his intelligence. He's playing within himself in a way, to make sure the team has the right balance."

Pogba's decision

Pogba is one game away from the final of the European Championships. France take on Germany in tonight’s semi-final and will be favourites to win the Henri Delaunay Cup if they beat the reigning World Cup winners.

The former United man hasn’t been at his superlative best in France but there is no greater setting to prove the doubters wrong than against Germany in the semi-final of a major tournament.

After the tournament, Pogba has a decision to make. Stay at Juventus or move to Madrid, United, or any other club willing to break the bank to sign him.

Henry knows what decision he wants Pogba to make.

“We all know about the quality, how good he is on the ball,” the former France striker added. “He's an all-round player but he's understood his role at this tournament.

"Hopefully he can come back to the Premier League - it would be great for us and for whoever got him but he's still a Juve player and they're not going to let him go easily."
