Paul Pogba's Brother Says Man United Made 'False Promises' And Convinced Him To Leave In 2012

​Paul Pogba's brother says he convinced the star midfielder to leave Manchester United in 2012 and slammed the club over their 'false promises'.

​Pogba graduated from Man United's youth academy and broke into the first team before departing for Juventus on a free transfer. 

And older sibling Mathias has taken credit for his brother's switch to the Italian giants ten years ago.

Asked if he pushed the player's move to Juve, Mathias ​told So Foot: "[Paul was] not just a little pushed, it was thanks to me that he signed there.​

"I convinced him, 100%," he added. "And look at the player he has become. In Manchester, he was given false promises."

​Amid uncertainty over the 29-year-old's future, Mathias will continue to advise him ahead of a potential summer transfer.

When asked about the role in plays in his younger brother's career, Mathias added: "The role of big brother, quite simply.​

"No more, no less. I will advise him until my death."​

Of course, Pogba returned to Man United in a transfer worth £89 million in 2016.

But, once again, he could depart Old Trafford with his contract expiring at the end of the season.

He's been linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain as well as a return to Juve.

Speaking during the international break, the World Cup winner bemoaned not fighting for trophies for the remainder of the campaign.

"The season is not over yet, but almost because we don't have any more titles to play for," he explained. ​

"I want to win titles, to play for something and this year and the last few years we haven't won a title. It's sad.​

"Totally [playing for France is a breath of fresh air]. That's the truth. There were difficult moments at United and I needed this break to regain my energy and confidence.

"Sometimes when I wasn't playing or the results weren't good, coming here, it gives a boost, a breath of air that also helps me to come back well to my club."
