Report in Italy claims done deal with Paul Pogba set to sign 3 year deal at Juventus

There has been a lot written about Paul Pogba’s future in recent months with it becoming clearer that he would not be signing a new contract at Manchester United. The 29-year-old’s contract expires next month, and he will leave the club as a free agent for a second time.

Pogba has been linked to a number of clubs – including PSG and Manchester City – but it sounds like a return to Turin is on the cards. At least, that is what has been reported in Italy via La Gazzetta dello Sport, with Juventus set to win the race to re-sign the World Cup winner.

The report claims Juventus and Pogba have agreed on a three-year deal, plus a salary worth €10 million per year, on top of a bonus that awaits him upon signing the dotted line.

According to The Times, Pogba got as far as agreeing personal terms with City following talks over a transfer, but he pulled the plug due to concerns about a backlash from United fans.

Meanwhile, if you ask most United fans about Pogba leaving this summer, they will probably tell you that they’re disappointed things didn’t work out – but they will be happy to get rid of him and everything that comes with it from his representatives and unwillingness to try make amends for his unconvincing performances.

It feels like he threw in the towel a long time ago in order to run down his contract, but there’s no point crying over spilled milk. Pogba moving on will give new manager Erik ten Hag a chance to rebuild United’s midfield and it needs a lot of work. We’ve tried a number of different systems down the years but have never been able to find the right role for the Frenchman, and it’s time for all parties to accept that.

    Pogba going, going, gone! Thank goodness for that. I used to defend him something fierce but this season I see him for what he is. And modesty, forbids me from using foul language to describe his career at United this second time. He has made a mockery out of United and for him to get paid such an enormous amount of money while only playing less than half a season, tells volumes about his ethics. To top it all, he pretends that when he is injured, he will get better faster in Dubai basking in the sunshine. Give me a break!
