Manchester United Key Player Signed To Leave Club Next Month

Following the completion of the negotiations on Thursday, Paul Pogba will join Juventus in the following month.

For £89 million, the former Manchester United midfielder departed Juventus in 2016.

Pogba will now return on a free in July while his lawyer Rafaela Pimenta resolves any unresolved issues about the duration of his new deal with the Italians, which may be either four years or three years with the possibility of an additional year.

On Thursday morning, Sportsmail claimed that Juventus was aiming to finalize Pogba’s return to Turin later that day.

The French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain, who were also interested in signing him for free, will be disappointed that a deal now looks to be on the horizon.

Pogba, 29, considered a move to Pep Guardiola’s champions Manchester City, but concluded a move to United’s bitter rivals would not be worth the hate.

Pogba, who left United to join Juventus – also for free – in 2012, was meant to be the homecoming saviour when the Premier League side paid a then-world record fee for his services.

But his six seasons in the northwest have been marred by injuries and inconsistency, leading fans and pundits to question his effort and determination.

The 91-cap international scored 39 goals in 226 appearances in all competitions but only once reached double figures in league goals, 13 in 2018-19 – a total he reached twice in his last two seasons at Juventus.

And while impressing his national side, helping Didier Deschamps’ France win the 2018 World Cup with several superb performances, he often failed to translate that form to his club side.

So Pogba will be aiming to prove a few people wrong in Italy, where he is revered for his four Scudetto in four years, also winning two Coppa Italia and two Italian Super Cups.

He admitted in his recent Amazon Prime ‘Pogmentary’ on his future: ‘My thought process is to show Manchester that they made a mistake in waiting to give me a contract.

‘And to show other clubs that Manchester had made a mistake in not offering me a contract’ although United did offer him a contract worth more than the £290,000-a-week deal he was on.

Pogba won just a Europa League and League Cup title across his time at the club and will doubtless be looking to continue lifting silverware at the same rate he did before at Juventus.
