Manchester United have completed the signing of Paul Pogba. The French superstar on Tuesday rejoined Manchester United from Juventus for a reported world record fee.
Pogba, 23, is expected to wear the number six shirt and has signed a bumper £290,000-per-week, five-year contract to work under Jose Mourinho. There is also the option to extend for a further year.
“This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to in the game,” said Pogba.
Pogba moved to Italy when United let him go for a nominal fee after his contract expired in 2012.
“I am delighted to rejoin United. It has always been a club with a special place in my heart and I am really looking forward to working with Jose Mourinho,” added Pogba.
United manager Mourinho has been tasked with bringing back the glory days to the 20-time English champions after three lean years since Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
And the former Chelsea boss believes Pogba can inspire United’s revival.
“He has the chance to be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond,” said Mourinho.
“Paul is one of the best players in the world and will be a key part of the United team I want to build here for the future. He is quick, strong, scores goals and reads the game better than many players much older than he is.”
