Pogba wanted "change of scene"

Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has disclosed Paul Pogba "wanted a change of scene" and the Serie A champions couldn't block the midfielder's decision to leave Turin.

Pogba sealed a move from Juve to Manchester United for a world-record fee in August, but Marotta says the Italian side never wanted to see the Frenchman leave.

"We always said we never wanted to sell Pogba, as he was an important figure for the club, the coach and the fans," Marotta said in quotes attributed to JTV.

"He wanted a change of scenery and to experience a different situation, so faced with that we had to enter into negotiations and try to make him happy.

"We had already targeted Higuain and he was the main image we had in our head, but it was a coincidence that this happened at the same time that Pogba asked to leave."
