The 21-year-old refused to sign a new contract at Old Trafford after becoming frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Thus, Pogba joined the Bianconeri on a free transfer in 2012, and has since gone on to become one of the best young players in world football.

"Pogba is one of those players who leaves you speechless," Buffon told Italia Uno.

"When he came we didn't know him but after only three or four training sessions we were impressed by his enormous qualities.

"My teammates and me looked at each other as to say 'Are they blind in Manchester?'"
