Paul Pogba was a regular at Juventus in Italy during his four-year spell at the Serie A club, even earning a French call-up before Manchester United decided to spend a record-breaking return to Old Trafford. Paul Pogba will return to Juventus Turin on a free transfer after his contract with Manchester United expires, ending a disappointing second six-year spell. Ten years after Paul Pogba left Manchester United to sign for Juventus on a free transfer, history repeated itself last week when the French midfielder said goodbye to the Premier League and returned to the Serie A club. Six years later, after selling Paul Pogba to Manchester United for a record 105 million euros ($116 million), Juventus again signed French midfielder Frans for free.
Manchester United’s Paul Pogba recently said he “made a mistake” by wanting to show Premier League sides that he didn’t renew his contract with Manchester United after this summer. Paul Pogba has been a free agent after leaving Manchester United after his contract expired, his second time away from a Premier League team for nothing. Paul Pogba has signed a four-year deal with Juventus that will keep the 29-year-old striker at the Turin club until June 2026.
With the end of Pogbas’ first stint at Juventus, Paul Pogba will be determined to get his career back on track. Paul Pogba is looking to repeat the success of his four-year spell at Juventus from 2012 to 2016 when he won four consecutive Serie A titles and established himself as one of the most dynamic midfielders in the world. This form helped Juventus win four Serie A titles, a place in the Champions League final and brought Paul Pogba a record transfer.
During his second tenure at United, the France playmaker netted 39 goals in 226 games while winning only two trophies: the Europa League and the League Cup in 2016-17 under Jose Mourinho. Pogba said that it was difficult for him to adjust to the needs of changing managers at United and that positioning issues and injuries had taken their toll. Following his comeback to United, he featured for coaches Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Michael Carrick, and Ralf Rangnick. All of them failed to replicate his most refined form continuously. However, Pogba, who has 91 international caps, was instrumental in France’s World Cup victory in Russia in 2018.
Juventus fans were very excited with the news of Pogba returning, and they welcomed him with love while he was in Turin for his medical. Juventus as a club is also happy to have him back, and on their official website, they stated, “Although we parted ways, we never really forgot about each other, and there is something ancestral in the call that after a thousand adventures eventually leads you back home.”
