Paul Pogba will never be welcomed back at Manchester United, even if a number of fans on social media want him back.
People have short memories and a look on social media this week simply proved that. I saw accounts posing as Manchester United fans state that they would like to see Paul Pogba return to Old Trafford.
I thought we were over that episode, but clearly I was wrong.

After Juventus were docked 15 points recently for alleged financial irregularities and false accounting, a bizarre view was being pushed on social media that United should save the midfielder from the upheaval in Turin.
Pogba is yet to make a single competitive appearance for Juventus since leaving United, which is another reason why none of this makes any sense.
Furthermore, comments made by Pogba last year are enough to suggest he’d never consider coming back a third time. Speaking during an Amazon Prime documentary which was shamelessly titled ‘The Pogmentary’, he said: “My thought process is to show Manchester (United) that they made a mistake in waiting to give me a contract.
“And to show other clubs that Manchester had made a mistake in not offering me a contract.”
He also added: “How can you tell a player you absolutely want him and offer him nothing? Never seen that.”
In September, Pogba told GQ Italia how happy he was at Juventus.
“I like to think and say that it is my heart that made the choice to come back to Juventus. It was also maybe the right time to come back here.
“The last three years in Manchester, also conditioned by injuries, did not go the way I wanted, it’s not a mystery.
“Juventus came from two years in which they did not win the Scudetto. It was a good challenge for both of us, and maybe it was the right time to get together and try to take back our rightful place: me and Juventus.
“Inside of me I know that this jersey is very special. It brings out my best. We built a good history with this team, which I never forgot even when I left.
“Coming back here for me is always a reason to push even harder, to stimulate myself to do well. I never had any doubt that this is were I belong.”
