Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has had his say on the decision of former teammate Patrice Evra to end his football career.

Patrice Evra announced his retirement from football on Monday as he told Italian media outlet La Gazzetta Dello Sport that it was the right time to call it a day.

Paul Pogba reacted to the news of his retirement earlier on Tuesday via his social media account.

The former Juventus midfielder wished Evra the best of luck in his time as a retired footballer.

Evra and Pogba were former teammates at both club (Manchester United) and country (French national team) level.

Paul Pogba is still a long way from retiring from football but he has been at the centre of several transfer links this summer.

The French World Cup winner has been seriously linked with a move to both Real Madrid and Juventus this summer.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has been pushing for a move for Pogba but the possibility of him leaving Manchester United this summer is very slim.

The Los Merengues will require at least £150m in transfer fee plus astronomical wages to secure his signing from Manchester United who want to keep him at all costs.
