Paul Pogba’s return to Manchester United has been confirmed by the club.
The move from Juventus is reported to have cost United around £100 million.
“Manchester United is delighted to announce that Paul Pogba has completed his transfer from Italian club Juventus,” the Premier League club announced on their website in the wee hours of Tuesday.
“Paul joins on a five-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year.
“Paul, 23, has been with Juventus for four seasons, making 124 appearances and scoring 28 goals. He joined the Bianconeri from United in 2012.
“The midfielder has been capped by France on 38 occasions, scoring 6 goals and was a member of the recent squad that reached the final of Euro 2016.”
Pogba, who landed in Machester on Monday for his medical before completing the world record move, said: “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.”
Mourinho said: “Paul is one of the best players in the world and will be a key part of the United team I want to build here for the future. 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 make the position his own over many years.”
