Yaya Touré has revealed that Paul Pogba ignored him when the Ivorian tried to tempt the Manchester United midfielder to join him at Manchester City.

The 33-year-old admits he is a fan of the 24-year-old, who became the world’s most expensive player after re-joining United from Juventus.

Pogba was continuously linked with Manchester City, especially after the arrival of Pep Guardiola, however, the Frenchman joined neighbours Manchester United and revealed it was the only club he wanted to move to, even turning down Barcelona and Real Madrid.

“He (Pogba) is a good lad,” Touré said.

“He’s clever and I’m a bit disappointed because I spoke with him in the past and I wanted him to come to City but it didn’t happen.”

“It’s tough playing against him because he’s a great player.”
