Paul Pogba signs Juventus deal

Published Add your comment

Paul Pogba has signed a new five-year deal at Juventus, snubbing the interest from Premier League trio Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea, reports the Express.

The French international was monitored by the three English giants throughout the Summer, but any transfer speculation has now been put to bed after the Serie A champions announced the news on their official Twitter account.

Pogba and his representatives were holding talks with the Italian outfit earlier this morning before the two parties quickly agreed on a new contract, seeing the midfielder commit his future until 2019.

Wanted Man

The new five-year deal will come as a real transfer blow to the English trio, who were all hopeful of signing him next Summer.

Pogba, who was a youth player at Old Trafford, has quickly become one of Europe's top midfielders, and his consistent performances in Italy have caught the eye of several clubs around the world.

As well as the English clubs, French champions, Paris Saint-Germain, have showed interest, as have La Liga giants; FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.

However, all six clubs will have to look elsewhere now after the Frenchman penned his future at Juve.

Old Trafford Fall-Out

The 23-year-old left Old Trafford for Juventus after having a major fall-out with boss at the time, Sir Alex Ferguson, and since then, the midfielder has gone on to prove his talent by becoming one of the best midfielders in world football.

The Frenchman revealed in an interview that he chose to leave Manchester United after he was left out of a cup team, whilst left-backs and right-backs were used in his natural position instead of him.

Pogba admitted that is when he knew he had to leave in order to save his career.


Despite never using him properly, United have since declared their interest in re-signing the French star, but this morning, Juve's managing director announced the news of a new contract.

The club's official Twitter account tweeted the following: 'Marotta: @paulpogba has just renewed his contract with us until 2019.'
