Pogba: I heard from Chelsea, Arsenal and Milan but nobody is like Juventus

Paul Pogba has revealed he was courted by a number of clubs prior to him joining Juventus last summer.

The 20-year old French midfielder signed with the Turin outfit from Manchester United in July 2012 despite interest from some fairly big clubs in the UK and Italy.

"Sir Alex Ferguson tried to keep me at Manchester United, but he didn't get very far," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"Other clubs were tracking me but I only had Juve in my mind. At the time, I heard from Chelsea, Arsenal and Milan, but nobody is like Juve.

"Since childhood I've always liked Juve and supported that team.

"For the French this club means a great deal, as so many French champions played in Turin, so that's why I liked them.

"I am happy to be here and I want to win many trophies with this jersey."
