Pogba to sign four years contract at Juventus worth £68 million

French football player Paul Pogba will reportedly return to Juventus on a four years deal worth £68 million following his departure from Manchester United.

The Red Devils confirmed the French World Cup winner will depart Old Trafford once his contract expires at the end of the month.

Juventus are favourites to snap up Pogba on a free transfer for the second time, after selling the midfielder for a then world record fee of £89 million back in 2016.

Despite also receiving interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that he will likely return to the Bianconeri.

It's said that he will earn up to €10 million (£8.5m) net per season, made up of €8m plus bonuses, 

The contract, agent fees, signing-on fees as well as various bonuses could take the total amount paid out for the deal up to €80m (£68m).

Rafaela Pimenta, the laywer who has taken over the negotiations for former clients of Mino Raiola after his death, is working on a four years deal for Pogba at Juventus.

It's added that Pogba is hoping to become the centre of a sporting project after six difficult seasons at United, where he last won a major trophy in his first campaign back at the club. 

Pogba enjoyed his most successful time as a player in his club career at Juventus from 2012 to 2016.

During that time he won four Serie A titles, and helped them reach the Champions League final in 2015.

He returned to United with much optimism but struggled to replicate his performances for Juventus or at international level for the Red Devils.

It was previously reported that Pogba will walk away from Manchester United with a £3.78 million loyalty bonus when he quits as a free agent at the end of the month.

United confirmed that Pogba will leave Old Trafford for a second time when his contract runs out on June 30, bringing to an end one of the most disappointing and costly careers in the club's history.

Their farewell message to Pogba gushed over a career that had brought so many individual high moments, so many beautiful goals, assists and pieces of skill.

In all, Pogba played 226 times during his second spell, scoring 39 goals and setting up a further 51.
