Ex-Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has accused his former club of changing their values after they set a world record with Paul Pogba's transfer fee. Paul Pogba, 23, arrives from Juventus, rejoining the club that he left for a mere £1.5m four years ago, after failing to break into the first team.
Meanwhile, his main title rivals have been busy with a number of big-money signings, most notably the £89m spent by United on re-signing France midfielder Pogba.
"But I feel the time is right to go back to Old Trafford", Pogba told the club's official website.
Lineker then added: "Given the wealth of the Premier League more of the greats will come here and not just to Barca and Real Madrid". "Personally, one of my dreams is to win the Ballon d'Or".
"When I first came, I remember when I was at the academy, they used come and drop us", Pogba added.
"From a performance point of view this could lead to the reestablishment of the top four - Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool".
Wenger said that from a technical point of view he could see why United wanted Pogba: "The value of a player is dependent on his talent, the expected strengthening of the team, his age and of course his resale value".
"You can't prevent it so I guess you just have to embrace it and do as well as you can in that environment".
"The day that this is football, I'm not in a job anymore, because the game is about playing together".
"Paul is one of the best players in the world and will be a key part of the United team I want to build here for the future. I didn't finish what I started here so I think I came here to finish it".
United parted with 89 million pounds ($116.03 million) to bring the Juventus midfielder back to Old Trafford according to the British media, and Preston North End stopper Lindegaard believes it's a further example of the club's changing principles.
"I'm very, very happy, the feeling I have in my body".
"We have, in the squad, 23 plus the keepers - and even so we had to make decisions and let some players go on loan, and try to sell others".
