The one that got away

During the summer Paul Pogba decided to leave the Manchester United for the greener grass of Juventus because of a lack of first team chance.

On Saturday, Juve took on Napoli at in a battle of top three sides in Italy. Pogba started the game on the bench but made a big impact after he came in 76th  minute. During the his 18 minutes on the field Pogba scored his first league goal on a great shot and showed flashes of why people say he is Patrick Vieira like.

Since Roy Keane left United, the Red Devils have been looking for a strongman in midfield. They have tried Fletcher, and even Phil Jones. Progba would have been perfect for that role and would have allowed United not to worry about this position for the next decade.

I know that people wanted to keep him at United, but it hurts when you see him showing the promise at another club.
