Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he tried to sign Paul Pogba as a teen.
Pogba is expected to start for Manchester United on Saturday against the Gunners.
Wenger has revealed he tried to sign Pogba when the youngster was leaving United on a free transfer.
The Frenchman eventually opted for Juventus, but Wenger explained: “Things happened very quickly.
“We were interested in him. We tried to get him to come here. But he very quickly signed for Juventus.”
