Sagna: Pogba must choose Juventus over Real Madrid

Former Manchester City fullback Bacary Sagna can see Paul Pogba leaving Manchester United for a Juventus return.

Sagna says Pogba is more likely to join Juventus than Real Madrid this summer due to his love for his former side and the allure of playing with Cristiano Ronaldo.

"I see more Paul returning to Juventus because Cristiano [Ronaldo] is there and because Juventus is the club that made him shine," Sagna told Goal.

"He loves the club, he already knows it.

"It will be tricky for him to go to Madrid now because Madrid are not doing so well and there would be big expectation on him and the Madrid team is getting old.

"Juve have bought some players like Ramsey and Cristiano. OK Cristiano is not young anymore, but he plays like a young boy and they still have a young team.

"If you think about the next two or three years, I think Juve has bigger potential than Madrid."
