Frenchman Paul Pogba has landed in Turin ahead of his free transfer move to Juventus. The Old Lady have made a big transfer coup with the imminent return of Pogba to the club. The Euro 2020 participant has decided to return to Juventus after six years at Manchester United. He would be the fourth player with the most salary at €7.5m per year when the move is finalised as revealed by media portal Sportrac. Only the Juventus duo of Matthijsde Ligt and Adrien Rabiot plus Alexis Sanchez will earn more than him.
At Manchester United, Pogba had two different spells and he could have extended his second spell at the club beyond this summer if not for the decision to end his career at the Theatre of Dreams. Manchester United offered him a new contract, but it was turned down by the player.
While he was a Juventus player, Paul Pogba scored 34 times in 178 appearances for his first spell in Turin. He would join Argentine star Angel Di Maria as free transfer signings for the Old Lady in the coming hours. Di Maria has joined Juventus on a free transfer from French club Paris Saint Germain (PSG).
