Chelsea boss Conte wishes Man Utd's Pogba well...AFTER Sunday!

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte plans to keep Paul Pogba quiet on Sunday but ultimately hopes the world record signing is a success at Manchester United, reports the London Evening Standard.

Conte was in charge of Juventus when Pogba left Manchester United for the Serie A giants in 2012.

When asked if he has come up with a special game-plan to stop the France star, Conte said: "We must pay attention to the whole Manchester United team. There are a lot of great players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and I consider him a fantastic player. There are many, we must pay attention to all of them. We must find the right solution with and without the ball.

"Pogba came back to England because he was born here in a football aspect. I remember when we (Juventus) took him from Manchester United, he was a fantastic and great player, at the maximum level. He deserves all (he gets).

"To come back to Manchester United was his dream, I wish for him the best but only after the game."
