Le Havre hit out at Man United over Pogba signing

Manchester United have completed the signing of French starlet Paul Pogba, although his club Le Havre have hit out at the Premier League champions for their behaviour.

The Red Devils' transfer policy has caused uproar with his former employers and the French side have called on the football authorities to act in order to prevent similar situations arising in the future.

"Le Havre want to express their indignation at the actions of Manchester United officials and their pursuit of Paul Pogba," read a statement on the club's official website.

"Paul Pogba, his parents and Le Havre were bound to a contract called a 'non-solicitation agreement' from autumn 2006.

"At the end of that contract, the three parties agreed to sign a trainee contract when the player matched certain age and scholarship criteria, taking him through to the end of the 2009/10 season.

"However, the player and his parents have refused to fulfil the agreement because Manchester United have offered big money to the parents to get their son to England.

"While a lot of voices have started to be heard coming out of the EU, governments, Fifa and Uefa against 'minor slave trade', Manchester United have not hesitated to uproot a 16-year-old kid."
