    For Pogba's generation it's impossible to go past Zidane, he was everything for France.

    I too would be happy to sign a work contract with an outrageous sum at the bottom.

    According to Evra even after the deal agreed, Pogba was still sleepless and crying because he wanted to stay but also wanted to play.

    According to some it has to be money related. One of the most coveted young players in europe wouldn't want to come back and actually live in Manchester.

    its certainly another twist to the tale. He's painted as the young impatient guy who called Fergie's bluff

    At United, he wanted to play so arranged a move out of the club when he thought that his chance wasn't coming soon enough but he was torn between actually move for playing time and stay in a club where he loves everyone. Now Evra said that SAF sent him to talk with Pogba and that Pogba was sleepless and crying but that there was nothing to do because the decision was already made.(I think that at that time, Pogba had only verbally agreed to join Juventus)

    I think anyone who watched him walk out on to the pitch for his second debut knew this already. He looked as happy as can be, and proud as a peacock.

    What a surprise! I for one thought he looked really sad, and on the verge of killing himself, glad Lukaku could now inform me he was really happy.

    This goes against the official Pogba narrative that he's only using United for the pay raise and as a stepping stone to the Spanish giants, so it must be wrong :wenger:

    The guy's just outgoing and confident, maybe a little immature but not in a bad way. Don't have him down as arrogant at all.

    It is unfortunate Juve is considered a sort of university / erasmus by budding stars nowadays but it also shows evidence of the gap (the gulf) between 550m/year and 350m/year turnover. That said, Agnelli & Marotta proudly boast the club is almost self sustaining and so ok, we try our best to win both on the pitch and accounting.

    Ohh ffs!!. They are killing all the drama by being nice and saying nice things about each other.
    The Jose-Mata standoff never happened as predicted. Rooney didn’t sulk after he lost his place. It seems Mkhi never banged Jose’s daughter and now Pogba is not an arrogant Mercenary?
    At this rate we will need Mata to turn into a Costa level cnut just to balance the universe.

    Might be on to something here. Maybe it just that these experts in conspiracy theory and such are not that smart.

    Underrated post. His wage probably quadrupled at least. The United that Pogba left is very different from the current one also which might have factored into a sense of nostalgia.

    Agreed. he does come across a little too relaxed at times.

    He wasn't happy at Madrid either by all accounts. I don't know all the details but apparently he couldn't stop talking about money.

    No way to know whether he would have signed for that amount or not. His agents job is to get the maximum for the player.

    I mean do you expect any player to tell their agent to forget about negotiations and sign at the first offer?

    There seems to be a bit of a narrative brewing with Lukaku and United these last few days.

    When Pogba walked in to Old Trafford for the first time in years, he looked so happy, praising the lords for giving him another chance.

    I feel so emotional thinking about it.

    Wouldn't be the worst signing tbh. I just have a feeling he'll explode at 25 with experience. He needs to be smarter at times which will come with age and he's a good goalscorer already. He's more of a Mourinho #9 than Marcus.

    I thought Lukaku said it was his decision?
    He was way too raw at the time tbh.

    If it was Lukakus decision then Jose may still see value in him.

    Lukaku has said it was his decision, and that Mourinho wished him luck both when he told Jose he wanted to move on for first team spots and also immediately after he officially signed the contract.
