Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United when his contract expires at the end of June, while the club has had its first talks with Barcelona about signing Frenkie de Jong.
A graduate of United Academy Pogba left Old Trafford for Juventus as a free agent in 2012 to return four years later for the then world record of £ 89 million.
But he has a second term with United, who has confirmed that he will leave for the second time for nothing this month after the contract expires.
“The club may announce that Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United at the end of June, after his contract expires,” United said at the beginning of a long farewell statement on the club’s website.
“Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Paul on his successful career and thank him for his contribution to Manchester United.
“We wish him all the best for the next steps on a remarkable journey.”
Pogba scored 39 goals in 233 shows in the first United team, which he first came from the French club Le Havre in 2009.
This midfielder, who was a key part of the winning FA Youth Cup in 2011, joined Juventus the following year and enjoyed a time full of medals in Turin.
Pogba returned to Old Trafford in 2016, but struggled to keep his bills, with triumphs in the EFL Cup and European League in his first United campaign proving to be his only silver.
The 29-year-old – the World Cup winner with France in 2018 – is now leaving United for a free transfer, returning to Juventus.
Juventus, PSG, Real Madrid – where to go now?
Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth:
Pogb’s deputies held positive talks with Juventus last month, but continue to have a dialogue with Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.
Sky Sports News it was said that there were offers from Juventus and PSG on the table.
The decision on the next Pogbu club is expected “soon”, with his final choice being the “football decision”.
If Pogba goes to the European club, they are unlikely to offer him more money than United was willing to pay when they offered him a new contract last summer.
At the age of 29, it will probably be the last remaining high years of Pogb’s career and his last big contract, so he will want to fix it.
Sky Sports News Pogba, who is currently on holiday in Miami, was said to have doubts about the French League of Nations matches in June as he continues to recover from a calf injury.
Man Utd negotiates with Barca for De Jong
Following confirmation of Pogb’s departure, Manchester United held introductory talks with Barcelona on the signing of the midfielder. Frenkie de Jong. There are a number of midfielders that United is looking at.
Sky Sports News it was said that the agreement was not close because it would be necessary to overcome “significant obstacles” – especially the fee and the will of the player.
De Jong is a highly rated player of United Erik ten Hag. The Dutch national team played under him in Ajax and was part of the team that won the 2018/19 Eredivisie title and reached the semifinals of the Champions League.
However, the 25-year-old, who played 139 matches for Barcelona, is reportedly reluctant to leave Nou Camp this summer.
Pogba on Man Utd: Badly made or wrong?
Dan Sansom from Sky Sports:
It was an agreement that caused social media insanity. Pogb’s Manchester United announcement video in 2016, which emerged from the shadows of the red devil in his hair, was followed by a sponsored music video with Stormzy. The hype around #POGBACK has begun.
It was supposed to be the beginning of something special. A new era for the club, which is still trying to find its feet after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson three years ago.
However, Pogba failed to inspire United to its former glory. The 2017 League Cup and the European League are the only trophies of his six-season operation.
Pogba leaves the club for the second time after a whistle against Norwich and a calf injury in Liverpool in April. He cannot be blamed only for United’s failure, but his departure signals the crushing end of the transition that he promised so much.
While Europe’s largest clubs are preparing to attack, Sky Sports looks at Pogb’s second career at United.
How did it go so wrong? Was he mismanaged? Or was it Pogba who made the mistake?
Pogbov’s departure from ManUtd confirmed – Have your say
A selection of your best comments after Pogb’s second career at Manchester United is coming to an end …
Paul Pogba, not bad management, he is to blame! He did not use his chances in various positions. It will probably suit him best in Juventus, where he was excellent before!
Liverpool could suit him perfectly. His, Fabinha and Thiaga would be great to watch.
No Pogba for Chelsea, thanks. Next season, we have to join Conor Gallagher, a young English player as talented as Pogba, but without luggage.
God forbid! .. Pogba embodies everything that has gone wrong in the club lately, and will forever be associated with this era of gross unattainable results.
Shocking management decisions regarding him, let Pogba go to Juventus for free, then buy him back a few years for a world record fee and now let him go again for free! In any other business, it would be perceived as shocking management, but in football, no one’s eye.
