When Paul Pogba chose to desert Manchester United, it offered some moral comfort to former club Le Havre, who had lost him to United under similar acrimonious circumstances.
In 2009, feeling his academy players were being poached by bigger clubs like United, Le Havre managing director Alain Belsoeur launched a scathing attack (via The Guardian):
It is a very serious case. We are confident that we'll win  because it is in the best interests not just of our club but of sport. We spend €5 million [£4.3 million] on our academy every year out of a turnover of €12 million. It is a huge investment.
We do that to give a chance to our players to develop for our first team, not to be an academy for others. What is the point of investing in an academy if the players leave at 16? This is clearly a message from FIFA to protect the education system.
In December 2011, Sir Alex Ferguson was candid about Pogba's contractual dispute (via ESPN FC):
He's got an agent  who's obviously become a bit difficult but we're negotiating with this agent and we want the boy to stay.
Matt Busby summed it up perfectly, that you don't need to chase money at a club like Manchester United, it will eventually find you. If you're good enough, you will earn money and become rich playing for us, there's no doubt about it.
When it was clear that Pogba was running down his contract to sign with Juventus, Ferguson accused the French youngster of disrespecting the club on MUTV (via Football-Italia.net).
Pogba responded to L'Équipe (via SportingLife.aol.co.uk):
A 19-year-old player who said no to Ferguson—maybe he took it badly?
The coach trusted me, but he didn't play me, saying I was too young. He said 'Your time will come' but it didn't come.
I didn't go to Juve because I knew I would be part of the starting line-up. I have no guarantee.
When I was at Manchester United, I have been told I would play.
The reason why Pogba didn't play the amount of minutes he wanted was because he didn't sign his extension on the dotted line.
What if he was played more? Would he have been more inclined to extend his contract?
There was enough discord in his relationship with the club that he basically spent the latter part of his United career counting down the days till Bosman freedom.
 Le Havre took the Pogba case to FIFA, who ruled in United's favour. The English club had threatened to sue Le Havre over allegations that Pogba's parents were offered economic incentives, which swayed Pogba to sign for United. Both clubs settled their differences.
 Pogba's agent is Mino Raiola, who is notoriously hard for clubs to negotiate with. According to Ian Herbert at The Independent, Raiola secured a £1.6 million commission from Juve. He is also the agent of Zlatan Ibrahimović and Mario Balotelli.
