Manchester United has completed the signing of French midfielder, Paul Pogba.
Pogba joined United from Juventus for a world record fee of £89 million.
The 23-year-old had been with Juventus for four seasons, making 124 appearances and scoring 28 goals. He joined the Italian side from United in 2012.
Pogba has played 38 times for France, scoring six times. He was a member of the recent squad that reached the final of Euro 2016.
Pogba 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 be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond.”
