Andrea Pirlo says that Italian champions Juventus are "still laughing" Andrea Pirlo says that Italian champions Juventus are “still laughing” about the fact they were able to sign Paul Pogba for a nominal fee in 2012.

Last week, United re-signed France international Pogba for a world-record £89m.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Pirlo – who played with Pogba at Juve before moving to New York City in 2015 – said: “On the first training session Pogba had with Juventus the players were laughing.

“We were just in total disbelief that this player with so much obvious ability was able to leave a club the size of Manchester United for free — and I think Juventus are still laughing.”

Juventus won four successive Serie A titles during Pogba’s time at the club.

“I am not saying that Juventus will have wanted to let him go,” added the 37-year-old midfielder. “But things have worked out pretty well for them.”
