Pogba: I turned down Barca & RM

Paul Pogba has revealed he turned down the chance to join Real Madrid or Barcelona this summer in favour of a move to Manchester United.

The French midfielder joined the English giants for €105m because he had ‘unfinished business’ with the club.

"I came here because I have targets, it's a big challenge for me," Pogba told SFR Sport.

"I could have also gone to Real Madrid or Barcelona, they were interested. I chose to return, because I had that in my heart. It was my feeling that brought me here.

"I want to win with Manchester United, I've never won with them. I had always said that I would return — I didn't know when – because it's a club that I like a lot.

"I hadn't finished, I left because I wanted to play. I hadn't done what I had wanted to do here. I want United to become the great United again. That's my challenge here."

Barca had the option to sign the 23-year-old in 2015, but the move collapsed due to presidential elections at the club.
