The Frenchman said United are “the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to” after his enviable world-record €104m deal.

Pogba who completed his mega-switch from Juventus to Man Utd in the early hours of Monday, made it clear to the press that playing for United has always been his goal.

“I am delighted to rejoin United. It has always been a club with a special place in my heart and I am really looking forward to working with Jose Mourinho,” he told the Red Devils’ official website.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Juventus and have some fantastic memories of a great club with players that I count as friends.

“But I feel the time is right to go back to Old Trafford. I always enjoyed playing in front of the fans and can’t wait to make my contribution to the team.

“This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to in the game.”
