21st May 2022

MANCHESTER UNITED midfielder Paul Pogba has reportedly agreed to return to Juventus having taken a huge pay cut.

The 29-year-old is available on a free transfer with his contract at Old Trafford to expire at the end of the season.


Manchester City were believed to have been keen to snap up the 2018 World Cup winner, but Pogba feared a fan backlash from the United faithful.

Meanwhile Paris Saint-Germain had been desperate to sign the player in their bid to bring him back to his native France.

But according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, it is Juventus that have won the race to secure his services.

It will be the second time that the Old Lady have signed him on a free after he initially ran his contract down at the Theatre of Dreams in 2012.
