French midfielder Paul Pogba has completed an incredible move back to Italian giants Juventus on a free transfer. This is the second time that Pogba will join the Bianconeri on a free transfer after letting his contract with Manchester United expire, as he did the exact same thing 10 years ago back in 2012.

Pogba hasn’t had the best of years at Manchester United with the dynamic midfielder arguably failing to reach the high levels that the Red Devil’s fans thought he could reach. He will be hoping to reignite his career in Turin where he is loved not only by the Juventus fans but also by coach Max Allegri as they worked well together in Paul’s first stint in Turin.
In a statement announcing the deal, Juventus had this to say: “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. With Paul that is exactly what has happened.”
They continued on by stating :
“Although we parted ways, we never really forgot about each other, and there is something ancestral in the call that after a thousand adventures eventually leads you back home.”
“Paul is back in Turin. He left as a boy and returns as a man and a champion, but there is one thing that has not changed – the desire to write unforgettable pages of club history together once more.”
“Pogba is back and we couldn’t be happier.”
Pogba is not the only player to complete a move back to an Italian club after a hard spell in England, as last week Beligian striker Romelu Lukaku completed a one year loan deal back to Inter Milan after a disappointing season at Chelsea.
