Why I rejected Barcelona and Real Madrid – Pogba

Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, has claimed that he snubbed Barcelona and Real Madrid, because he felt he had unfinished business at Old Trafford.

The France international rejoined United from Juventus, for a world-record £90million in August 2016, four years after he left as a free agent.

But Pogba says he could have easily moved to La Liga and signed for one of the top teams.

“I came to Manchester United because I have certain goals. It is a big challenge for me,” Pogba told SFR Sport.

“I could also have joined Real Madrid or Barcelona, who were interested in signing me. But I chose to return to United because I followed my heart.

“I want to win trophies with Manchester United, I never won anything here. I always told myself that I would one day return to United. It is a club I love a lot and I had unfinished business here. I left because I wanted to play more, but I felt that I was not done here yet.

“I am not even thinking about the transfer fee. I came here to play football.
