World record buy Paul Pogba starts for Manchester United versus Southampton

Manchester, England: Paul Pogba, the world`s most expensive player, will make his second debut for Manchester United against Southampton on Friday after being named by coach Jose Mourinho.

United have spent 89 million pounds ($116.91 million) to bring the France midfielder back to the club from Juventus following his departure for Italy in 2012.

Pogba was suspended for last week`s Premier League opener at Bournemouth.

His first league debut for United came in January 2012 when he came on as a substitute in a 2-0 victory against Stoke City.

Pogba looks set to play in a midfield two in a 4-2-3-1 formation alongside Marouane Fellaini, behind attacking quartet Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial.
