Paul Pogba claims unfinished business lured him back to Manchester United as Real Madrid and Juventus line up to prise him away again this summer.

The France internationals future remains the source of uncertainty having failed to live up to his 89million price tag since returning to Old Trafford four years ago.

Pogba has made no secret of his desire to seek a new challenge, while United are prepared to sell if a club meets their 150m asking price.

But with major doubts over Real or Juve coming up with a suitable bid, United face the prospect of having to slash their valuation or bank on Pogba finally realising his potential in a red shirt.

And the 27-year-old, who is ready to return to action once the season resumes after ankle surgery, has revealed his desire to achieve his ambitions at United after initially leaving the club for Juve in 2012.

I was really happy to come back, he said. I left it and didnt finish. I started something, but I didnt finish, I just went somewhere else.

Obviously, coming back where I started was for me, why I was really happy. Now Im ready to come as a confirmed player not a youth player.

My mother always told me: You will go somewhere but come back. She always said this.

I was like: We will see but you know mothers and the things she said: You will come back here, dont worry and that was just after. She said you will come back to Manchester, dont worry, and I did.

Pogba has been a regular target for critics after failing to lead United back to the top.

But speaking to Uniteds official club podcast, he discussed his unwavering self belief.

My parents came from Africa to get to France and worked hard for me, he added. I think, as a kid, you dont really know but my mum, there used to be five in the house, and its hard for a mother.

You have to feed them and have to be there for them and everything. She works hard to help us, you know. For us, so we have everything, because of her, so I have to work 10 times harder and its something I always have in my mind.

My dad as well. To be the best, the first, to always want more.

When you have a dream, just go for it. A dream is free. You wake up after a dream but, at least when you dream, you can dream as big as you want.

You still dream and want to achieve it. What my goals are, I always want more, we can always learn at this age or 10 or even 40 or 50.

You will always learn something. I love to learn new things. I love to try things and stuff.

You can listen to the rest of the interview from Monday evening.
