Nani backs Pogba to shine on Utd return


Former Manchester United winger Nani has backed ex-teammate Paul Pogba to shine amid speculation linking him back to Old Trafford.

The Portuguese winger who left Old Trafford in 2015 says Pogba will be a "great player" despite the £100 million price tag.

"Pogba is a great there are no doubts about that, but the numbers today are different [in terms of] the way the clubs buy the players," he said.

"I don't want to talk about numbers but the player is a fantastic player and any team who buys him will be very well set."

Meanwhile Juventus coach Massimo Allegri says he expects Pogba to train with the Italian side on Monday.

“Pogba in Vinovo for training on Monday,” Allegri said on Saturday morning.

“A Pogba replacement? He is still a Juventus player and I expect to see him in training tomorrow.

“There’s no point in discussing replacements for Pogba because right now he’s a Juventus player.”
