Man United confirms exit of Paul Pogba
Manchester United have confirmed that Paul Pogba will be leaving the club on a free transfer this summer. The 29-year-old joined United from Le Havre in 2009 and progressed through the Old Trafford junior system before making his first-team debut in 2011.
Pogba, however, only made seven appearances for Man United during his initial term with the club before joining Juventus on a free transfer in 2012. During his time with the Old Lady, the France international made 178 games and won four Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia trophies.
Man United re-signed Pogba in a £90 million move after his performances in Italy. But he has struggled to replicate his finest form for the 20-time English champions during his second stay at the club.
The midfielder’s future has been a hot topic in recent years, and he was linked with a transfer away last summer but ended up staying at Old Trafford. Pogba scored one goal and added nine assists in 27 games for Man United in 2021-22, but he missed the latter months of the season due to a calf injury. The midfielder made his final appearance of the season against Liverpool at Anfield on April 19.
limping off the field within the first 10 minutes, Pogba was called-off by Ralf Rangnick, whose side eventually ended in a 4-0 defeat. Pogba was seen in the later stages of the season building up his recovery from injury, but he was left out of the squad against Crystal Palace on May 22.
For the second time in his career, Man United has confirmed that the Frenchman will leave the club on a free transfer.
“The club can announce that Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United at the end of June, upon the expiry of his contract,”
stated on Club’s official website.
PSG and Real Madrid have both been linked with a move for the midfielder, although Juventus remain the frontrunners to re-sign him on a free transfer.
