Pogba quit Old Trafford to move to Juve on a free transfer in 2012.

He won four consecutive Scudetto’s alongside two Coppa Italias as his team dominated Serie A.

Despite letting him leave the club, United kept tabs on the midfielder who proved himself among the world’s best.

Jose Mourinho brought Pogba back to the Premier League in a £89m deal two years ago.

Pogba faced his old side in Group H last month, with Juve narrowly beating United 1-0 on Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford.

And the World Cup winner has revealed why he still has such affection for the city of Turin.

And Pogba told RMC: “I expected it. It was mad. I’d spoken about it with my brother last summer.

“I said to him ‘imagine we’re in the same group as Juve’.

“For me, it’s a pleasure. Turin is my home – that’s where I scored my first professional goal.”

It has been speculated Pogba could one day return to Juventus,

But he has also said that United “has always been my home and forever will be”.

The 25-year-old remains in touch with former team-mates and spoke how much he learned from Andrea Pirlo during his time in Italy.

He said: ”[Juan] Cuadrado, [Paolo] Dybala, [Leonardo] Bonucci, I hear from them, we speak from time to time.

“We were a family, so of course we stay in contact.

“When you’re alongside players like Pirlo, Gigi [Buffon] or [Giorgio] Chiellini, you can only learn.

“Every day, in training, you try to observe them. Even as an established player, you can always learn from those sorts of men.”
