Antonio Conte explains why he's so annoyed with the Matic sale

Ryan Giggs has backed Paul Pogba to significantly increase his goal tally this season and believes he could be the key to helping Manchester United regain the Premier League for the first time since 2013.

"He brings aggression to United's midfield, which is something they've been lacking".

"I really like the Matic signing", Scholes told BT Sport.

"I was surprised because selling to a direct rival isn't the norm at the top end", he said. Conte made it a clear what "a great loss" it is for his side to see Matic go to a league rival, and just how "very important" the Serbian was to his team.

"He's very similar to Carrick as a midfielder, but what he brings that Michael doesn't is a little bit of aggression. I had the benefit of realising how good he is when he's playing just in front of you, on and off the ball", said the England global to Sky Sports on Wednesday.

One of the theories mooted for United's capture of Matic is that it should enable some of the Reds' attacking talents to better express themselves further up the pitch.

'But sometimes I think you must accept this insane transfer market.

"Him and [N'Golo] Kante were magnificent".

"Him and [N'Golo] Kante were magnificent together and that allowed [Eden] Hazard and [Cesc] Fabregas that bit of freedom".

"I have to say that it is a unusual move, it really is, to sell to one of your main rivals".

The Italian manager is also angry that it has hampered his plans for new signing, 22-year-old Tiemoue Bakayoko, who is not only young and new to the league, but also recovering from a knee injury, and will now not have the time Conte wanted him to be afforded in terms of his debut. "But he is a great loss for us". "It would be silly to dismiss Chelsea after the way they played so dominantly a year ago but looking at the teams, I think City and United will be up there and the teams to watch".
