Paul Pogba didn’t exactly hit the ground running at Manchester United by his standards. Therefore, it is a wise decision that both parties decided to part ways, although the Frenchman left Old Trafford as a free agent.
The Italian Old Ladies released a statement on Monday, confirming the return of the Frenchman to Turin. The statement read:
“When we say goodbye after an intense adventure shared together, there is always a glimmer of hope that we will see each other again, sooner or later”
“To be precise, Paul scored 14 times from outside the penalty area in his four Serie A seasons, head to head with Miralem Pjanic at the top of that specific scoring chart. Years in which Pogba emerged as a world-class talent, winning trophy after trophy in the black and white stripes, and coming close to Champions League glory in 2015.”
It can be recalled that Pogba, 29, rejoined Manchester United from Juventus in 2016. Before then, he established himself as a key player for the Italian giants from the 2012 to 2016 season, helping in 4 Serie A title triumphs.
The Red Devils had to part with a whopping €105 million to ensure his return to Old Trafford, although, he never quite hit the heights expected of him on his return to the club.
In his second spell at Old Trafford, he won 2 English League Cups in 2010 and 2017 respectively, as well as the UEFA Europa trophy in 2017.
Although he had a mixed stay at Old Trafford, in that period he played a vital role in France’s FIFA World Cup win in 2018 in Russia.
