Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United on a free transfer, when his contract expires at the end of June, the club has confirmed

 

Brunomossy Pogba, 29, broke the world record for a reported £ 89 million when he rejoined the club from Juventus in 2016. He played 27 matches in the last season of injury in his second season. “It was a calm end for United which brought a lot of good times for everyone,” the Old Trafford club said in a statement. “Lots of great goals, assists and skill. “For a young man who joined the academy at the age of 16 and played more than 200 United matches and carried the Youth Cup, as well as two trophies (Silverware), it is something to be commended and celebrated.” Pogba joined United for the first time from French club Le Havre in 2009 at the age of 16 and was part of the youth team that won the 2011 Youth Cup. He played only seven senior matches before his contract expired in July 2012 and left to join Juventus.

 

 

 Pogba won eight major awards in Turin, including four consecutive Serie A titles, before returning to Old Trafford for a record break. He won the EFL Cup and the Europa League in his first season at the club but they confirmed the only trophy he would win in his second half. A misunderstanding with then-manager Jose Mourinho led to him losing the captaincy in 2018 and injuries that affected his play. Pogba scored 39 goals in 233 appearances throughout his time at the club but his last home game against Norwich City in April saw him mocked by his supporters when he was replaced. ‘An expression of United’s careless thinking’ For all the details in their statement, the fact is that Manchester United paid twice for Paul Pogba – to get him from Le Harve and then broke the world record at the moment by costing him £ 89m to buy him from Juventus. And there has never been a time when Pogba has provided the high level of play that United needed from him. There has been a lot of excitement, especially his two-goal contribution in a 3-2 victory after returning to Manchester City in 2018 with his four assists against Leeds United on the opening day of the season. But he was very short-lived compared to the results of players like Kevin de Bruyne at Manchester City and even Fabinho at Liverpool, Pogba’s influence was phenomenal. It looked as if United spent all that money on Pogba a second time with no plan on how to get the best out of him. It meant that his off-field character began to blow. He was in stark contrast to Jose Mourinho, who stripped him of his captaincy in anger at leaving Old Trafford, and did not pay the trust that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continued to show for him. Wherever Pogba goes – and Juventus have not been linked with a move away from him – he will likely be a huge influence.
