Manchester United announced that Paul Pogba has completed his transfer from Italian club Juventus. Pogba joins on a five-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year.

Paul, 23, has been with Juventus for four seasons, making 124 appearances and scoring 28 goals. He joined the Bianconeri from United in 2012.

In order to thank Paul Pogba for his Juventus years, the Bianconeri would like to pay him a tribute:

« The agreed sum surpasses the previous record set by the transfer of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, thus making Pogba the most valuable player in the sport’s history, » Juventus said.

« The switch sees the Frenchman return to the club with whom he made his professional debut in 2011 and brings an end to a truly remarkable four-year stay in Turin, a city in which he lifted four of the Bianconeri’s five history making consecutive Scudetto titles to go with a trio of Italian Super Cups and a pair of Coppa Italia trophies.

« On an individual level, Pogba’s arrival at Juventus Stadium in the summer of 2012 and continued excellence in the heart of the side deservedly saw him progress from a promising youngster into a world-class performer, being first named European Golden Boy in 2013 before closing a magnificent 2015 with a place in both the UEFA and FIFPro teams of the year.

« Everyone associated with Juventus Football Club would like to thank Paul for his unforgettable four years of service and wish him the very best upon his return to England with Manchester United. »
