Manchester United sign Paul Pogba in world-record £89m switch from Juventus

NEWISSUES, Abuja

The 23-year-old has signed a five-year contract with the option of a sixth season

Manchester United have announced the world record £89m signing of Paul Pogba.

The 23-year-old has signed a five-year contract with the option of a sixth season after United agreed a deal with Juventus.

The £89m figure eclipses the £85million that Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale in 2013.

Pogba left United four years ago for a nominal fee, and went on to win four Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia twice while his reputation grew – persuading Jose Mourinho to pay a colossal sum to bring him back to Old Trafford.

“I am delighted to rejoin United,” Pogba said. “It has always been a club with a special place in my heart and I am really looking forward to working with Jose 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.”
