NEW MANCHESTER UNITED singing Paul Pogba has been named in Manchester United’s starting line-up against Southampton tonight.

The French international has returned to Old Trafford following his world record £89 million transfer from Juventus after four years away, having left United for Serie A for an estimated £1.5 million in 2012.

In his first spell in Manchester, the 23-year-old made only seven appearances for the club, with his three league appearances all coming from the bench.

Meanwhile, Ireland’s Shane Long starts for the visitors.
