POGBACK AGAIN: Paul Pogba OFFICIAL return to Juventus
The French midfielder is moving back to the club he left in 2016 after his second United stint
He spoke of moving to a club where he felt loved and he has just done it. In a move that has been in the works for a long time, but which very few ever called into question, Paul Pogba is now officially a Juventus player.
"As you can see, I'm back. I'm very happy. I can't wait to start with you and win trophies again. We'll be there, on the pitch and on the stadium, all together", said the World Cup winning midfielder in a short video released by Juventus.
It's not the first time he's spoken similar words, as this proves the second big return of Pogba's career. The Bianconeri are, somewhat ironically, pushing the #POGBACK hashtag, which was the same used by Manchester United to announce his return to Old Trafford in 2016.
"In 2016 our paths separated after four incredible years. Years in which that talented young French boy of less than 20 years old made his debut in the First Team, and after less than a month he scored his first goal. Years in which we had learned to hold our breath every time we saw him load the shot from outside: we knew how it could end, and often ended in a roar of joy", reads the article announcing Pogba's return in the Juventus official site. In his 177 matches with the Bianconeri shirt, Pogba scored 34 goals and provided 40 assists.
Paul Pogba, who will wear the number 10 shirt, left vacant by the departure of Paulo Dybala, signed a four year deal, making 8 million per season. As the Juve site puts it: "Paul is back in Turin, he left as a boy, he returns to be a man and a champion, but there is one thing that has not changed: the desire to write other new unforgettable pages, together. We couldn't be happier: Pogba is back with us".
