Paul Pogba is reportedly set to join Juventus from Manchester United on a free transfer for the second time in his career.

Pogba previously joined the Italian giants in 2012 from United after failing to agree a new deal with the English club.

After enjoying a successful four-year first stint in Turin, winning four consecutive league titles and two Coppa Italia trophies, the French midfielder returned to Old Trafford for a world-record £89milliion (N46billion) fee.

The 29-year-old won the Europa League and League Cup in his first season back, but overall was only able to perform in fits and starts for the Red Devils, whilst consistently starring on the international stage for France.

After a difficult 2021/22 campaign, Pogba’s contract expired, making him available on a free transfer this summer.

And multiple sources have claimed he will be re-joining Juventus.

Writing on Twitter, Fabrizio Romano said on Tuesday:

Juventus are closing on final details for Paul Pogba deal. Contract almost agreed, €8m salary net per season plus add ons. It’s just matter of final details. Juventus expect Pogba to sign the contract for his return very soon.

And on Wednesday, Romano added:

Paul Pogba will sign his contract with Juventus at the beginning of July, the expectation into the club is now clear. Final details are being discussed but verbal agreement is in place for his return. Pogba has turned down Man City approaches one month ago.

Pogba will hope to replicate the success he had at Juve the first time around. In his four years in Turin, the Frenchman won four Serie A titles and two Italian Cups and helped the Old Lady reach the Champions League final in 14/15.
