What Manchester United player Paul Pogba spoke about with Juventus star Blaise Matuidi
Updated: 11 september 2018
Paul Pogba will be reunited with Juventus teammates when Man Utd play them in the Champions League and Blaise Matuidi has previewed the fixtures.
Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi admits he has ‘joked’ with Paul Pogba about the Manchester United midfielder’s Champions League return to Turin in November. United were drawn with Juventus, Valencia and Young Boys in the group stage and Pogba is poised for a reunion with the team he spent four years with after he left United in 2012.
Matuidi and Pogba were reunited over the last week on international duty with France, whose World Cup celebrations continued in Paris after their Nations League win over the Netherlands on Friday night. Pogba and Matuidi have been playing together for the national team since Pogba made his Les Bleus debut in March 2013 and the duo were ever-presents during France’s triumphant World Cup campaign.
Former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Matuidi shares the same agent as Pogba in Mino Raiola and, amid speculation surrounding a possible move back to Juve, Matuidi spoke about the Italian champions’ task against United and Pogba’s mood ahead of the group stage ties.
“Our group is hard,” Matuidi told Gazzetta dello Sport. “Not just because of Manchester United but also Valencia. They’ll be good matches though.
“We’re prepared, we’ve been working hard in training to give it our all in the league and the Champions League. We have a very strong squad, with a lot of players who can express themselves over the season.
“Manchester? We joked about it with Paul, we’ve arranged to meet on the pitch.”
Matuidi, who scored against United in a 2015 pre-season friendly in Chicago, was Jose Mourinho’s fall-back option in the event a move for Pogba collapsed two years ago. Matuidi left PSG for Juve last year.
