Pogba tells Man Utd: No chance stopping me from joining Juventus

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba says he always planned to quit Manchester United.

Pogba admits he had his heart set on joining Juve even before he signed with the Premier League giants.

"Since childhood I've always liked Juve and supported that team," he told Sky Sport Italia.

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

"Sir Alex Ferguson tried to keep me at Manchester United, but he didn't get very far. Were other clubs tracking me? Yes, but I only had Juve in my mind. At the time I heard from Chelsea, Arsenal and Milan, but nobody is like Juve.

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