Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea feels Paul Pogba has “returned home” following his transfer from Juventus.
The France international signed a five-year deal this month to complete his £89 million move to Old Trafford, four years after leaving United for Juventus.
De Gea is delighted the 24-year-old has returned to Manchester and is adamant Pogba will prove to be a great addition.
“I think he is something special. Signing for this club, he played here before and I think he’s home,” De Gea told MUTV.
“He feels like this is his home and we are all really, really happy to have him again in Manchester. He’s now with all his friends again in Manchester, with everyone here, and he looks like he never left the club.
“He’s really good for the team.”
United also brought in experienced players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan and De Gea believes they now have the perfect blend.
“I think it’s good to have a mix of young players and experienced players,” he added.
“That’s what we have in the team now and I think it’s really good for the young players. They have done really well, they train very hard and it’s really good to see.”
Pogba missed United’s win over Bournemouth at the weekend due to suspension, but could make his debut in Friday’s home game against Southampton.
