Paul Pogba has returned to Juventus on a free transfer for a second time from Manchester United.

The 29-year-old has signed a four-year deal to return to Turin having previously joined the Italian giants in 2012 also on a free transfer from United.

The midfielder enjoyed a successful trophy-laden four-year first stint in Turin, winning four consecutive league titles and two Coppa Italia trophies with his performances putting him on the map of the footballing world and helping his meteoric rise.

He reunites with Massimiliano Allegri as the club looks to win its first Serie A title since 2020 and return to former heights after falling down the pecking order.

Sources familiar with the matter said that Paul Pogba preferred a return to Juventus after turning down interest from Premier League champions Manchester City.

PSG were also in the running but the departure of sporting director Leonardo and the arrival of Luis Campos cooled down the interest from the Ligue 1 champions.

Pogba will explain in detail his reasons for leaving in a documentary, “The Pogmentary,” which will be released on Amazon Prime on Friday.

Earlier this month, United confirmed that the midfielder would leave when his contract expired, bringing an end to an underwhelming six-year spell at Old Trafford.

Pogba returned to United amid much fanfare and hype in 2016 for a then-world-record fee of £89.3 million from Juventus.

He won three trophies in his debut campaign, but soon fell out with then-United manager Jose Mourinho and struggled to find consistency under successive bosses Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick being unable to replicate his performances for France in a United shirt.

The World Cup winner also endured an uneasy relationship with the United fans being booed by the supporters in his final two appearances against Norwich City and Liverpool as it was confirmed that he would not remain at the club.
