The 22-year-old has a contract with Juventus that won't expire until 2019, but he will be the subject of transfer speculation in the next summer window, with Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Chelsea and United all reportedly having interest in signing the Juve No. 10.
Speaking to La Stampa, the 22-year-old compared life at his current club with his spell at Old Trafford, where he made just seven senior appearances in three seasons at the club.
"People need to know that nothing at Juve is easy," Pogba said.
"There is a different culture of work compared to elsewhere. I was at Manchester -- it seemed like being on holiday.
"Here we work so much. All these titles, we did not steal them. It was by working right to the end."
