Juventus discovers that the finest things in life
Paul Pogba has officially signed a contract with Serie A powerhouse Juventus, ending his dismal second stint at Manchester United.
The 29-year-old Frenchman left Old Trafford at the end of the previous campaign after failing to reach a new contract agreement.
After months of rumors, he has now reportedly signed a four-year free agent contract to re-join Juventus.
The World Cup winner could not help but take a final swipe at the United hierarchy for failing to keep him at the Theatre of Dreams before returning to Italy.
Speaking in his Amazon Prime documentary, Pogba said: “My thought process is to show Manchester [United] that they made a mistake in waiting to give me a contract.
“And to show other clubs that Manchester had made a mistake in not offering me a contract.
“How can you tell a player you absolutely want him and offer him nothing?”
According to a statement on Juventus’ official website, the France international will return at some point. “When we say farewell after an intense adventure spent together, there is always a ray of optimism that we will see each other again, sooner or later,” the statement read.
That’s exactly what’s happened with Paul. Our paths diverged in 2016, after four amazing years.
“In the meanwhile, his skill and strength emerged when, as a vital member of his national team, he helped France win the 2018 World Cup.
“Although we parted ways, we never really forgot about each other and there is something ancestral in the call that after a thousand adventures eventually leads you back home.
“Paul is back in Turin. He left as a boy and returns as a man and a champion.
“But there is one thing that has not changed — the desire to write unforgettable pages of club history together once more.
“Pogba is back and we couldn’t be happier.”
While Pogba starred in France’s World Cup success, he failed to live up to expectations during his second stint at United.
Having rejoined the club from Juve for £89million in August 2016, he could only help the Red Devils win the Europa League and League Cup during a largely forgettable stay in Manchester.
