Pogba made his United debut in 2011 in League Cup encounter under Sir Alex Ferguson, although he did not get regular game time in the Premier League.

The Frenchman then left Old Trafford to join Juventus on a free transfer, although Ferguson has been vocal in his displeasure for the player's agent, Mino Raiola, for his involvement in the move.

Pogba informed The Official Manchester United Podcast that his mother predicted that he would return to United one day, which he did in 2016.

"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.

"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."
