Red Devils finally managed to signing for a record transfer fee of £89m (€105m) plus add-ons.

Pogba’s £89m move has seen him sign a five-year contract with the option to extend for a further year.

Juventus confirmed the clubs have agreed an initial €105m (£89m) to be paid over two financial years with a potential €5m (£4.25m) in add-ons, depending on Pogba’s success.

The agreed fee makes Pogba’s move the most expensive transfer ever – eclipsing the £86m Real Madrid paid to sign Gareth Bale from Tottenham in 2013.

The 23-year-old left the Red Devils in 2012 under Sir Alex Ferguson and he has since helped the Italian club to four Serie A titles.

In 2012 he made a free transfer to Italian club Juventus and he made the history today by this transfer so in 4 year he improved his class like he became expensive player of the world.

Pogba told the club’s website: “I am delighted to rejoin United. It has always been a club with a special place in my heart and I am really looking forward to working with José Mourinho.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Juventus and have some fantastic memories of a great club with players that I count as friends. But I feel the time is right to go back to Old Trafford.

“I always enjoyed playing in front of the fans and can’t wait to make my contribution to the team.

“This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to in the game.”

“He is quick, strong, scores goals and reads the game better than many players much older than he is.

“At 23, he has the chance to make that position his own here over many years.

“He is young and will continue to improve; he has the chance to be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond.”
