Paul Pogba Has Sights Set on Playing With Neymar One Day

Paul Pogba Has Sights Set on Playing With Neymar One Day

Paul Pogba has his sights set on playing with Neymar at some point in the future.

The Manchester United midfielder is currently on international duty ahead of France’s friendly with Colombia on Friday night.

While away, he’s been talking to the press and had some interesting comments on the PSG attacker.

Two years ago, Neymar praised Pogba in an interview and told of his goal of playing alongside the Frenchman in his career.

Now Pogba has responded saying the same.

In an interview with tycsports.com, per espn.co.uk, Pogba said: “I know that in Brazil, football is everything. It’s life. Everyone plays football in Brazil. When I see him play on the pitch and enjoying himself, with his technique, his agility… I love to watch him play.

“It’s a different style. He has his own style. When you say Neymar anywhere in the world, everyone knows who he is and what he does. For me, it would be a pleasure to play with him one day.”

Could that be at Manchester United or PSG? Or maybe the pair could link up elsewhere given the persistent rumours linking them with moves away from their clubs.

Pogba has had a difficult second season at Old Trafford amid rumours of a rift with Jose Mourinho, while Neymar – who was injured weeks ago and forced to miss PSG’s Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid – has been linked with a big move to the Spanish giants.

Perhaps we could see both end up in Madrid?
