Paul Pogba: Wants call-up to France national side

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."
