Following his departure from Manchester United, Paul Pogba is expected to return to Juventus on a four-year agreement worth £68 million.
The Red Devils have revealed that the French World Cup winner will leave Old Trafford at the end of the month when his contract ends.
Juventus are favorites to sign Pogba on a free transfer for the second time after selling him for a then-world-record fee of £89 million in 2016.
Despite interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, he is expected to return to the Bianconeri, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport.
He is expected to earn up to €10 million (£8.5 million) net per season, consisting of €8 million-plus bonuses, according to reports.
The entire amount paid out for the agreement could be up to €80 million (£68 million), including the contract, agent fees, signing-on fees, and different bonuses.
Rafaela Pimenta, the lawyer who took over Mino Raiola’s former clients’ discussions after his death, is negotiating a four-year contract for Pogba with Juventus.
After six challenging seasons at United, when he last won a major prize in his first season back, Pogba hopes to become the ‘focus of a sporting project,’ according to the report.
From 2012 until 2016, Pogba was at Juventus, where he had his most successful period as a player.
He won four Serie A titles during that time and helped them reach the Champions League final in 2015.
He returned to United with high hopes, but he struggled to match his Juventus or international performances for the Red Devils.
Pogba will leave Manchester United with a £3.78 million loyalty bonus when he leaves as a free agent at the end of the month, according to reports.
United have confirmed that Pogba will depart Old Trafford for the second time when his contract expires on June 30, bringing an end to one of the club’s most disappointing – and costly – careers.
‘A career that has delivered so many individual high moments, so many magnificent goals, assists, and pieces of skill,’ they gushed in their parting tribute to Pogba.
During his second tenure, Pogba appeared 226 times, scoring 39 goals and assisting on another 51.
