Jose Mourinho: Why Manchester United is the perfect club for Paul Pogba


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was delighted at the news that Paul Pogba will sign for the Red Devils this week.

The Frenchman has arrived at Manchester United for a medical before his world record £89million transfer from Juventus.

He is the club's fourth summer signing and joins defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

And the 53-year-old believes Old Trafford is the perfect place to bring the 23-year-old to the level he wants to reach.

"I think United is the perfect club to bring him to the level that he wants to be," Mourinho explained.

"The Premier League is the perfect habitat for that. If you want to be the best player in the world I think if you go to Barcelona, to Real Madrid you are in trouble because I don't think the other big guys will let you into that level.

"Here he has the conditions - the most seen championship worldwide which is absolutely incredible, with a team that wants to bring Man United to the top again.

"So we have everything to give him and we know the reasons why he wanted to come to us. Money, he would get from many big clubs so that's not the point.

"He comes because he knows the club, he knows the city, he knows many of the players, he wants to be an important part of the Man United project so hopefully everything goes well and he comes to our team."
