Manchester, Aug 10: Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho spoke highly of French midfielder Paul Pogba and expected him to become a superstar at the club.

Pogba, 23, returned to the English Premier League side from Italian club Juventus on a five-year contract with an 89 million pounds ($118 million) transfer fee, which eclipsed the 85 million pounds that Real Madrid paid Tottenham Hotspur for Gareth Bale in 2013, reports Xinhua.

"He has everything. But he's a very young player, an unbelievable midfield player with such physicality but, at the same time, such agility, co-ordination and skill," Mourinho said on Tuesday.

"What he has to learn now is how to play with us, and the team needs to learn how to play with him," he added.
