Paul Pogba has said that his mother told him he would return to Manchester United when he left the club in 2012 to join Juventus.
Pogba joined Juventus on a free transfer after growing frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities at Old Trafford.
The France international was a huge success in Turin, helping Juventus to win four consecutive Scudettos before rejoining United for a world record £89.3m.

And Pogba has revealed how his mother was always certain that he would eventually leave Juventus for a return to Manchester.
Pogba told The Official Manchester United Podcast: “My mother always told me: ‘You will go somewhere but come back.’ She always said this.
“You know mothers – the things she said: ‘You will come back here, don’t worry’ and that was just after [Pogba had left United]. She said you will come back to Manchester, don’t worry, and I did.”
Pogba added that he returned to United because he believed he had started something he was yet to finish.
He said: “When I came back, I was really happy to come back. I left it and didn’t finish. I started something but I didn’t finish. I just went somewhere else – to finish it.
“Obviously, coming back where I started was for me, why I was really happy. Now I’m ready to come as a confirmed player not a youth player.”
