Numerous football sources in Italy, including Sky Sport Italia, Gazzetta dello Sport and Sportitalia, claim that Pogba will sign for Juventus next week, and that he will have a contract that will guarantee him 8 million euros per season.
Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Manchester City led them, but Pogba chose to return to the "place of happiness" He arrived in Turin as an unaffirmed player in 2012, after he did not get the expected opportunity at Old Trafford.
At Juventus, he grew into the best midfielder in the world, so in 2016 he returned to Manchester United for the then record transfer of 105 million euros. Juventus has never had a player in history from whom he got more, if we add up the games he presented in Turin, the money he brought to the club, and the fact that he is now returning as a free agent.
Of course, Juventus fans welcomed such news in euphoria. He played a total of 178 games for Juventus in which he scored 38 goals with 40 assists. Lawyer Rafael Pimenta will be in Turin next week to finalize the details of his contract with Juventus, and transfer specialist Sky Sport Italia Fabrizio Romano claims it is 8 million euros per season, plus a bunch of bonuses.
By the way, Pimenta's lawyer worked for Mina Raiola for two decades, and took over his clients after the famous agent died last month.
Pogba's history in United
“The Frenchman has enjoyed a long association with United, having joined the club’s Academy from Le Havre at the age of just 16,” read the club statement on Wednesday.
Pogba made 27 appearances in all competitions for United last season as they finished sixth in the league and missed out on a Champions League berth. He last played for United in April. “It was a low-key end to a United career that had brought so many individual high moments, so many beautiful goals, assists and pieces of skill,” United added.
