Juventus signing Paul Pogba has paid tribute to his former Manchester United teammates.

Pogba controversially was lured away from Manchester United this summer and formally signed for Juve on Friday.

"I started playing there when I was 16-17 years old. I learned a great deal from strong players like Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand and Wayne Rooney. I played alongside them and was able to admire their excellent level of football.

"I'm sure that at Juventus, with players like Pirlo, it will be a similar learning experience. I am truly happy to embark on this new adventure and hope I can do even better.

"I hope the fans take to me and support me. I like it when the fans yell your name and urge you on. It can give you an added boost."
