Man Utd midfielder Pereira jokes: I'll steal Pogba's phone to keep him!

Andreas Pereira has joked he might steal Paul Pogba's phone to ensure the Manchester United star stays at Old Trafford.

The World Cup winner continues to be linked with Real Madrid and Juventus.

And Pereira says he'll do anything to keep the 26-year-old at the Red Devils.

"It is great (to train with him)," Pereira said. "Just in the group he is a great person. It will be very important if he stays with us, he is a very good player and top class as a person as well.

"I learn from him every day, he is one of my closest friends, have been here with him since 16, so he is like family to me."

Asked if he has said anything to Pogba to ensure he stays at United, Pereira joked: "I might steal his phone so he don't speak to no one!"
