Bacary Sagna believes that his former France teammate Paul Pogba would rather rejoin Juventus than move to Real Madrid if he leaves Manchester United.

Former France international Bacary Sagna has tipped Paul Pogba to reject a move to Real Madrid in favour of rejoining Juventus if he leaves Manchester United.

Pogba's future continues to be a topic of much debate, despite the midfielder having been limited to only eight appearances across all competitions this season due to injury.

Real Madrid are thought to be leading the race for his signature, but Pogba's former international teammate Sagna believes that the World Cup winner will favour a move back to Turin.

"I see more Paul returning to Juventus because Cristiano [Ronaldo] is there and because Juventus is the club that made him shine. He loves the club, he already knows it," Sagna told Goal.

"It will be tricky for him to go to Madrid now because Madrid are not doing so well and there would be big expectation on him and the Madrid team is getting old.

"Juve have bought some players like [Aaron] Ramsey and Cristiano. OK Cristiano is not young anymore, but he plays like a young boy and they still have a young team. If you think about the next two or three years, I think Juve has bigger potential than Madrid."

Pogba made 178 appearances during his four-year stay at Juventus, helping the club to the Serie A title every season he was part of the squad.
