Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has insisted that he is ‘looking forward’ for the proposed return of French midfielder Paul Pogba.
Pogba left Man Utd in 2012 on a free transfer after growing frustrated over lack of first team action. However, the Juventus star now appears to be on the verge of moving back to Old Trafford this summer for a record breaking £100 million transfer fee.
Since his move to Italy four years ago, the dynamic midfielder has won four Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia trophies and English striker Wayne Rooney has urged Man Utd to make a ‘big statement’ by re-signing the 23-year-old.
In an interview with the Dailymail, Rooney said: “He was one of those players who, when you trained against him, somehow he would just hurt you. A knee in your side, bump into you, I don’t think he meant to do it, but it just happened.
“You didn’t even need to get into a tackle. Just go next to him and you’d find an elbow or some other sharp bit. So, if he comes, I’m looking forward to that again! But he had great ability, some of the things he could do, and he’s gone up a level since he left us.
