Lineker hails 'watershed' Pogba deal

09 August 2016, 19:00

London - Former England star Gary Lineker claims Manchester United's world record signing of France midfielder Paul Pogba is a "watershed moment" for the Premier League.

Pogba rejoined United from Juventus on Tuesday in a sensational £89m deal that has the captivated the football world.

The 23-year-old, given the number six shirt by United, has signed a five-year contract with Jose Mourinho's team, four years after leaving to join Juventus for just £800 000.

With Real Madrid duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale and Barcelona forward Luis Suarez all lured away from the Premier League in recent years, Lineker, who played for Leicester, Everton, Tottenham and Barcelona, says Pogba's decision to join United sends a message that English clubs can still attract the very best players.

"The signing of Pogba by @ManUtd is a watershed moment for @premierleague. First time a huge foreign star in his prime has come to England," he wrote on Twitter.

"Given the wealth of the @premierleague more of the greats will come here and not just to Barca and Real Madrid. Interesting times."

Former United captain Rio Ferdinand was at the club during Pogba's first stint at Old Trafford and believes he won't let the pressure of living up to such a huge fee affect his performances.

"Paul is a huge talent and someone with the personality to handle that price tag," Ferdinand told BBC Sport.

"He can do everything. He is still working out the best way to use all of his weapons but, once he does, he will be an absolute monster of a player. Paul told me before he left that he wanted to be the best player in the world."

United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin posted a picture and a message to his France team-mate on Instagram.

Below an image of the pair, along with Anthony Martial, Schneiderlin wrote:"Welcome back @paulpogba!"

Jesse Lingard, who scored the winner in United's FA Cup final success in May, won the FA Youth Cup in the same team as Pogba back in 2011 and used Instagram to simply say: "Wait on it...welcome home @paulpogba."
