The Italian made it very clear that he did not speak to the Daily Mail.
Pirlo’s taken a different approach to the media in the United States, frequently giving out post game interviews and statements from the locker room at Yankee Stadium. However, when it came to a random “interview” that was published by the English Daily Mail, he simply wasn’t having it.
The NYCFC midfielder was allegedly quoted as saying “We couldn’t believe it! Did a player with as much skill as Pogba really come here for free? What were United thinking?”
Just to make it clear, I never gave any interview to the daily mail talking about Pogba and Manchester pic.twitter.com/JfR7TPIw0E

Having met Andrea Pirlo a few times myself, the interview immediately struck me as odd. In any case, we’ll never really know if Juventus were laughing all along.
