Former Manchester United chief David Gill insists they tried everything to keep hold of Paul Pogba. The Frenchman left almost two years ago for Juventus.

Gill said: "We offered him a very good wage, as well as a very generous fee for his agent.

"I don't want to go into details because it was a complex issue.

"However, what I can say is that we were very disappointed.

"Whenever a player is determined to leave and his contract allows it, there is nothing we can do about it.

"I can assure you that we did not hold anything back, financially."
