Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand says he was shocked when the club decided to sell midfielder Paul Pogba.
The Frenchman left Old Trafford in the summer of 2012 to make a move to Juventus in the Serie A.
He now has a market transfer value of £100million and new manager Jose Mourinho wants him to become his fourth and last signing of this summer's transfer window.
Ferdinand wrote on the Sunday Times: "He was 17, nearly 18, and before he came into the changing room I said, 'Listen, this kid, I've seen him play for the reserves and youths and he has something.'
"After he trained, not a player in that Manchester United first team disagreed. Everyone was sold on Paul Pogba. When he left United every player was saying, 'What the hell is going on?' But he came to a decision to leave and sometimes these things happen in football."
