Football's worst kept secret is finally out - and it's about time.

Paul Pogba has completed his world-record return to Manchester United from Juventus for a fee believed to be £89 million.

After months of conflicting rumours, opinions and reports, this summer's biggest transfer saga has drawn to a close to the delight of United supporters and relief of everyone else.

The Red Devils, somewhat bewilderingly, announced the deal in the early hours of Tuesday morning but given how every man and his dog knew a deal would eventually be struck, a low-key unveiling was perhaps fitting.

Jose Mourinho, Twitter and Pogba himself have since reacted to the move, but it's Juventus' official statement that's perhaps most interesting.

The Old Lady have confirmed exactly how much United forked out to re-sign a player they shipped for £700,000 in 2012.

They wrote:

For those of you who can't read Italian - don't worry, I can't either - native publication Football Italia have translated the most important details.

The source states: "Pogba fee is €105m + €5m bonuses + agent Mino Raiola's fee which will be around €20m + image rights. So yes, in the end €140m."

In British pounds, that's approximately £119 million.

The weight of expectation - and money - is now on Pogba's shoulders heading into what should be a very exciting season for United.

Mourinho has built an impressive squad at the Theatre of Dreams since taking over on May 27, having also signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly.

On his return to United, Pogba said: "I am delighted to rejoin United. It has always been a club with a special place in my heart and I am really looking forward to working with Jose Mourinho.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Juventus and have some fantastic memories of a great club with players that I count as friends.

"But I feel the time is right to go back to Old Trafford. I always enjoyed playing in front of the fans and can’t wait to make my contribution to the team.

"This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to in the game."
