Paul Pogba: Juventus confident of finalizing three-year deal for ex-Manchester United midfielder’s return | Soccer News

Juventus are increasingly confident that they are in the final stages of agreeing a three-year deal for Paul Pogba which will put him in their highest-paid bracket.

Sky Sports News was told that the Serie A side had received verbal assurances that the midfielder would join them after leaving Manchester United as a free agent.

The negotiations went well with Rafaela Pimenta, who represents Pobga since the death of Mino Raiola.

She was an attorney at the late agent’s firm for nearly two decades and is weighing requested changes to the proposed contract before a closing meeting.

Beyond what Juve believe is an inconceivable change of heart from Pogba, the club are optimistic all formalities will soon be completed despite Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid’s dialogue with his side.

The suggestions are that an announcement could be linked to the Amazon Prime film about the France international called ‘The Pogumentary’, which is due to air on June 17.

Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri is said to have played a pivotal role in the 29-year-old’s decision, not only due to unlocking Pogba’s best football in the past, but providing a clear blueprint on how his abilities will again be maximized.

With the exception of the tactical and technical pitch, Juve played to the advantage of having an emotional attraction to the man they conceded a record £93million for, including the add-ons, when he moved to United in 2016.

Pogba won four Scudetti in four years with the Bianconeri and was sold a happy return, as well as status as a key player in the club’s rediscovery of domestic and European glory.

Juve have also been the more solid in their approach with Real and PSG not ‘as active’ in pursuing the player as both have been distracted by Kylian Mbappe’s more pressing situation. The latter, however, would have made a formal proposal.

It was Manchester City who rivaled Juve in terms of the seriousness of their push, with Pep Guardiola meeting Pogba and the club penning a lucrative deal to demonstrate their willingness to land him.

The World Cup winner, currently on holiday in Miami, considered moving to rivals United on football merit but felt the noise and hatred that came with it were not worth it.

Speaking in May, pundits at Sky Sports locked horns as they debated whether Paul Pogba would be a good signing for rivals Manchester City.

A fresh start, albeit on old ground, was apparently considered a better overall choice.

Pogba at Man Utd: mismanagement or mistake?

It’s the summer of 2016. Jose Mourinho is the manager of Manchester United and the club has just broken the world transfer record. A Frenchman has returned to Old Trafford for unfinished business.

“It’s the right club for me to achieve everything I hope for in the game,” Paul Pogba said after completing his £89m return to United from Juventus.

“He is lucky to be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond,” added Mourinho.

It’s a deal that has caused a frenzy on social media. Coming out of the shadows with a scarred red devil in his hair, Pogba’s announcement video was followed by a sponsored music video featuring Stormzy. The #POGBACK hype had begun.

It was supposed to be the start of something special. A new era for a club which is still struggling to find its feet after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson three years earlier.

But Pogba was unable to inspire United to former glories. The 2017 League Cup and the Europa League are the only trophies of his six seasons.
