Pogba to re-join Juve 'at the beginning of July' after rejecting PSG


Paul Pogba of France looks on during the FIFA World Cup 2022 Qatar qualifying match between Ukraine and France at Olympic Stadium on September 4, 2021 in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Paul Pogba will rejoin Juventus when his contract expires at Manchester United at the start of July.

Pogba, 29, returns to The Old Lady six years after leaving Juventus for United for a then world record £89.3m fee.

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid were also linked with the France international but he has opted for a return to Juventus, where he enjoyed huge success before his move to Old Trafford.

For the second time in his career, the World Cup winner has signed for Juve on a free transfer.

During his first spell with Juventus, Pogba won four league titles and the Coppa Italia twice.

However, he was unable to replicate that success at United, winning only the Europa League and Carabao Cup during an underwhelming six-year spell with the Red Devils.

United fans' frustrations with Pogba turned to anger in recent weeks following the release of his controversial documentary, titled 'The Pogmentary'.

One clip from the series shows Pogba and his agent describing a £300,000 per week contract offer from United, which the midfielder described as "nothing".

The Amazon Prime documentary is currently the worst-rated TV show or movie on IMDb, with a rating of just one out of 10.

According to the Daily Mail, Pogba has cost United almost £1m per game during his second spell at Old Trafford and will earn a £3.78m loyalty bonus when his contract expires at the end of the month.

He leaves United having managed 39 goals in 233 appearances for the club.

In four seasons at Juventus, Pogba played 178 times and scored 34 goals from midfield.
