TURIN, Italy, Dec 16- Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is missing life at Juventus, according to his former team-mate Paulo Dybala.

The France midfielder left the Serie A champions in the summer to re-join United in a world record £93.25m deal after four years away from Old Trafford.

Since his return, Pogba has scored five times in 22 appearances for United, including the opening goal in Wednesday’s 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace.

But Dybala, who played alongside Pogba at Juventus during the 2015/16 campaign, says he keeps in regular contact with the 23-year-old and revealed his former team-mate still has a huge soft spot for his old club.

“I’m still talking to Pogba,” Dybala told Corriere dello Sport. “We are missing him for his quality on the pitch and his jokes in the dressing room.

“However, he misses us as well. Just look at our position in the table and the one of Manchester United.”

United currently sit in sixth place in the Premier League, 13 points behind leaders Chelsea, while Juventus are four points clear at the top of Serie A.
