Andrea Pirlo believes Juventus teammate Paul Pogba ‘has become one of the best players in the world’ since joining Juventus.

Frenchman Pogba has been the subject of a number of transfer ‘rumours’ recently, some of which have linked him to a return to Manchester United, however Pirlo believes a return is unlikely.

“For whatever reason they chose not to give him a chance and that is a mistake they will have to live with now,” Pirlo told Telefoot.

“I can’t see that he will ever return to Manchester United.

“When he first joined us in training at Juventus we knew there was something about him, and in just two years he has become one of the best players in the world.

“Of course he is going to have options, he knows that. You can’t play at the level he is and not attract attention.

“But he also knows that at Juventus he is already at one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

“I have spoken with him, and told him if he carries on working hard and makes the right decisions there is no limit to what he can achieve.”
