Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has rejoined the old lady of Juventus 6 years after leaving them for his childhood club Manchester United. The France international was resigned by the red devils in 2016 for a then record €105 million 3 years after selling him to Juventus. Paul Pogba rejoins Juventus on a free transfer from Manchester United.
In six injury affected years at Manchester United, Paul Pogba scored a total of 39 goals in 226 appearances for the red devils in his second spell at the club. During that time Pogba went on to win the world cup with France in 2018 and was never really able to replicate his form for the national team at club level, hence, making it difficult for his club bosses to find a suitable role for him. He was only able to win two trophies in his second spell at united, the League cup and the Europa League, both in his first season back at United under then Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho. His final game for United was a 4-1 loss to Liverpool back in April, a match in which he picked up an injury and was substituted in the first half of the game.
However, after his departure Manchester United penned a statement of appreciation to Pogba saying “for a boy that joined the academy at 16 to make over 200 united appearances and lift the league cup, along with two major pieces of silverware-not to mention the world cup at international level- is something that should be applauded and celebrated, everyone at the club would like to congratulate paul on his successful career”.
