Kiko Macheda admits Paul Pogba will be a big loss to Manchester United.

Pogba has agreed to join Juventus when he comes off contract at the end of this season.

"A fantastic player, a guarantee for any team where he will go. He can really become a hit in his role in midfield, but I hope he remains in Manchester," Macheda told TMW.

"I do not know what will happen, but I say this because I do not think there is a team like United in Italy.

"But I think he can become even better than Patrick Vieira."
