The 19-year-old, who departed Old Trafford for Juve last summer, has made 26 appearances for the Serie A club this season, scoring five goals.

He has also helped the Turin club reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in seven years.

Pogba is now hoping to fulfil his international ambitions by earning a call-up to the Les Bleus squad.

The teenager has already represented his country at youth level, most recently with the Under-20s.

He said: "I have enjoyed this season. To play 20 (league) games and score five goals on my first full season in the Italian Serie A, I am happy.

"Now I need to get that call up to the French national team. I am working towards that.

"If I keep performing the manager can think about me."

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
