Pogba insists he was "happy" at Man Utd but made Juventus decision months ago

Former Manchester United star Paul Pogba has insisted he was happy at the Red Devils, but he'd decided to join Juventus 'months ago'.

Pogba has rejoined the Old Lady after leaving Turin for Manchester – to the tune of £94million – in 2016. The Frenchman said: "I believe in destiny, I am happy with all the choices I have made.

"Sometimes things don't go as you would like, but I am happy with those years in Manchester: I grew up, I learned a lot and I became a man. Now the present counts: I'm here!"

And his decision to head back to Juventus was made at the back-end of last season, which ended in May. Pogba added: "It's always a pleasure to see the affection of Juventus fans over the years. I was focused on doing well in Manchester, but at the end of this year I thought I would like to come back, and I did."

Pogba rocketed to megastar status last time out in Turin, having left United in search of first-team football in 2012.

The Frenchman's performances convinced United to move back for him, but Pogba never hit his Serie A heights on his return, and he is now back on his way to Turin.

Pogba has added his decision to leave Juventus wasn't a mistake, but admitted he struggles with the change in coaches at United.

"It was not a mistake — not at all. I was very happy there but you never know what might happen.

"Maybe if I had won something different, maybe also the choices would have been different, but now I'm very happy to be here and I'm glad that I'm back here at Juventus."
