Silvestre: Pogba knows he has plenty to prove at Man Utd

Former Manchester United defender Mikel Silvestre believes Paul Pogba will have plenty to prove upon his return from Juventus.

Silvestre – who spent nine years at Old Trafford, winning five league titles – believes United’s insistence on landing Pogba is a step forward in their quest to control games, although chose to deride the continued inflation of transfer fees.

“With Paul, we want to dominate midfield,” he told Republik of Mancunia.

“Coming back over here, I’m sure he feels like he has some unfinished business.

“Coming back to United shows a good character and willingness to bring the club back and make it dominant again.

“But looking at prices for players now, the market has gone. You wonder when you are going to hit the roof.

“When you look at [Gonzalo] Higuain costing Juventus €97.4 million, it’s just madness.”
