Following the completion of the agreement, Paul Pogba has been confirmed for a free transfer to Juventus.
And according to reports, the agreement will be inked at the start of July.
In two weeks, Pogba will visit Italy. He was given away by Juve six years ago when they sold him for €100 million.
Paul Pogba completed the remaining months of his Manchester United contract before leaving, allowing the Italian powerhouses to acquire him for free.
Juventus is establishing a reputation as the free transfer kings, but their most recent signing is truly outstanding.
Paul Pogba’s Manchester United contract expired this summer, allowing the Frenchman to depart Old Trafford for free, and the Turin-based titans were able to recruit him without having to pay any transfer fees.
From Juventus’ point of view, that choice gave them the opportunity to acquire a highly skilled midfielder for just their salary.
The length of the agreement is still being determined, according to Skysports; it will either be a four-year contract or a three-year agreement with an option for an additional year.
When Pogba returns from his summer vacation, it will be time to sign the contract between Juventus and himself. Within a week, it’s anticipated that the agreement will be made public.
Six years after his initial departure from Juventus, Pogba has returned to Italy. United oversaw his homecoming after he left the Red Devils in 2012.
When he returned to Old Trafford for a then-record fee of £90 million in 2016, there was a great deal of anticipation that Pogba would help United recapture their old glory.
Instead, it was a decision that turned the World Cup winner into one of the Premier League’s most contentious players.
Some have argued that United should have surrounded the Frenchman with equally talented signings in order to fully use his skills.
Others only saw it as a case of Pogba dramatically falling short of the necessary effort level; this debate persisted during his second stint in the English top division.
As he hinted in his most recent Amazon Prime documentary, “The Pogumentary,” Pogba will be playing in Serie A with a point to prove.
“I want to prove to Manchester that they waited too long to offer me a contract, and to convince other teams that Manchester erred by declining to sign me to a contract.” He continued.
For the Italian opposition moving ahead in the next term, a determined Pogba might prove quite the issue.
The 29-year-old’s list is significantly lower than what was anticipated of him prior to his contract and he is leaving Manchester.
The legendary Roy Keane of United was never afraid to criticize Paul Pogba, but his most scathing assessment was probably when he mentioned the trophies he hadn’t won.
According to Keane, “I don’t think Manchester United signed Paul Pogba to play in the Europa League or to win the League Cup.
With only the Europa League and League Cup to show for his six years of work, Pogba is leaving United. He was hardly worth £90 million, but Juventus won’t be paying any price for him.”
