Juventus star Paul Pogba unfazed by speculation over his future – Neto

ESPN FC’s Gab Marcotti provides an update on the possibility of Paul Pogba returning to Manchester United.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is staying calm about the transfer rumours surrounding him, goalkeeper Neto has told ESPN Brazil.

France international Pogba has been strongly linked with a return to Manchester United, with Real Madrid also hopeful of signing him.

But Neto said: “He’s a very calm person, and doesn’t let transfer rumours affect him.

“He works and doesn’t listen to the stories, and you can see the fruits of that labour on the pitch.

“He’s a very humble but spectacular person, and the rumours in the newspapers don’t interest him at all.”

He said he admired Pogba “not just for his football qualities, but for the person he is. He’s a great friend.”

Sources have told ESPN FC that United are keen on bringing Pogba, 23, back to the club this summer, with an asking price of £100 million mooted for his services.

And former France international Thierry Henry has said he believes Pogba can become one of the finest players ever.

“I think he can be one of the best midfielders in history,” Henry told Sky Sports News HQ.

“He has the quality to do that. He needs to make sure he concentrates on what he can do well.

“Hopefully he can come back to the Premier League — it would be great for us and for whoever got him — but he’s still a Juve player and they’re not going to let him go [easily].”
