Wayne Rooney Claims Pogba Has ‘Unfinished Business’ At Manchester United


Manchester United striker and captain Wayne Rooney appears very excited at the prospect of playing alongside Paul Pogba next season. The French midfielder has been linked with a move back to his former club Manchester United all summer and looks close to finally signing for the Red Devils.

In an interview with English news outlet The Daily Mail, Rooney spoke about how he hopes Pogba will eventually join him in Manchester. “I hope he is going to want to return to United and prove he’s a top-class player. If he is excited to play for us, we’ll be excited to have him back. I’m sure he’ll feel there is unfinished business, and it would be a very big statement by the club if they can make it happen,” said Rooney. “[I remember] The bruises. 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.”

The current Juventus midfielder appears to be on the verge of joining up with Zlatan Ibrahimović and Rooney in what would surely be the biggest deal of the summer. It is reported that Manchester United are willing make Pogba the most expensive signing ever and shell out an incredible £100m to bring the French star to back Old Trafford after giving him to Juventus for free in 2012.

Rooney went on to speak about how there is a new energy around the club that feels more like the Manchester United of old. “I think the players feel this is more like the old Manchester United. It’s not just the new signings, we’ve got Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford from last season who made such an impact. We’re in a very good spot now, we think we can challenge for the Premier League, and we want to put a marker down, in the Community Shield with Leicester.”

Should Paul Pogba follow the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimović, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Eric Bailly and make the switch to United this summer, he would surely make Jose Mourinho’s side title favorites for the upcoming Barclays Premier League season.
