[골닷컴] Reporter Kang Dong-hoon = Italian professional soccer team Juventus reunite with Paul Pogba (29) after 6 years. Once again, he signed without paying a penny. All procedures, including individual agreements, have already been completed, and only an official announcement remains.
Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European football transfer market, said on the 24th (Korea time), “Juventus has confirmed the signing of Pogba. All agreements have been reached on the free agent transfer. After that, it will be officially announced.” He said, “Here We Go!” The news was delivered with text.
Pogba said goodbye to Manchester United (England) on the 1st of last month. The reason is that the contract renewal negotiations broke down due to the failure to narrow the range of differences of opinion. “My contract with Pogba expires on the 30th of this month,” Manchester United said in a statement.
Naturally, interest poured in from all over the news that Pogba could be signed without a transfer fee. Real Madrid (Spain) and Paris Saint-Germain (France) were in the midst of persuasion, such as trying to contact them with large salaries and bonuses. It was reported that Manchester City (England) also joined the signing process.
In the midst of this, Juventus, who has shown a steady interest since last year, also moved in earnest and started signing. In particular, Juventus was active in persuading him by using the relationship he had with Pogba in the past and offering to match the desired level of salary.
In the end, Pogba made the decision to return to the Italian Serie A stage, recalling good memories of his Juventus days, and decided to transfer. According to this media (Gol.com) ‘Italian Edition’, Juventus reached an agreement with Pogba by adding an annual salary of more than 8 million euros (about 11 billion won) and additional bonuses.
Meanwhile, Juventus earned 105 million euros (about 140 billion won) in transfer fees when they sent Pogba to Manchester United in 2016. Pogba recorded 34 goals and 40 assists in 178 appearances over the four years with Juventus.
