French midfielder Pogba joins Juventus and returns to the club he left in 2016
World Cup-winning French midfielder Paul Pogba is back in Serie A with Juventus on a free transfer, the Italian club confirmed in a statement on Monday.
The France international was free to negotiate with clubs over his next move after his contract with Manchester United ended. The 29-year-old has signed a four-year deal with Juventus which will tie him to the Italian giants until June 2026.
The move to Juventus would mark a return to the club where Pogba spent four years before joining United in 2016.
For Pogba, it will represent an emotional return to the club he left in 2016, having first come to Juve since United at the start of his senior career.
“Paul is back in Turin,” Juventus said on their website alongside a picture of a smiling Pogba in a Juventus shirt.
“He left as a boy and came back as a man and a champion. But there is one thing that hasn’t changed – the desire to write unforgettable pages in the club’s history together again. Pogba is back and we couldn’t be happier.”
“Juventus Football Club announces that it has signed an employment contract with player Paul Pogba… Juventus and the player have signed an employment contract until June 30, 2026,” Juventus said in a statement.
