The midfielder was bought for a fee of €105 million (R1.57 billion) plus €5 million (R75 million) from Juventus, becoming the most expensive player in the history of football.

"I am just happy to play football. I don't even think about it (the transfer fee)," he said, according to Manchester Evening News.

"It has happened, it is behind me, I am just looking to win the league. My ambition is always be the number one and be the best.

"So the objective is to win the league. We want to go back to the Champions League because that is where we belong."

Pogba was also asked whether he is likely to feature against Southampton on Friday, saying he feels more than prepared for the clash, despite his extended break in the off-season.

"You have to ask the manager but I feel very good and have been training for 10 days. I am okay," he added.

"I am quite used to this. I played the World Cup two years ago when at Juve and three years ago I was at the Under-20s World Cup as well. So I am okay. It is about your body and I have been training on my holidays."
