Paul Pogba told Juventus supporters, “We’ll see each other soon”, as the midfielder jetted into Turin to seal his Bianconeri return after leaving Manchester United.
The 2018 World Cup winner spent four years at Juventus after leaving Manchester United in 2012, winning the Serie A title of all seasons before returning to Old Trafford with a world record in 2016.
Aside from lifting the Europa League and EFL Cup trophies in his first campaign after his return, Pogba’s second leg against United looked particularly difficult, and the club confirmed he would go on a free transfer last month after a new contract dispute was not approved.
As soon as Pogba was linked with a return to first place when he returned to Juventus, his manager Maurizio Arrivabene said talks were continuing “very, very well” on June 30.
And in a video posted on social media from a private jet on Friday, Pogba said it was imminent.
“It’s time, it’s time, yes sir,” said the midfielder, adding in Italian; “see you soon.”
Pogba, who played 178 games and scored 34 goals in his debut with the Bianconeri, also added the caption ‘#PogAlmostBack’, referring to his 2016 United appearance.
The versatile midfielder got off to a good start to his last season at Old Trafford as he recorded four assistants during his first appearance in the campaign, but went on to add five more to his 26 appearances as the Red Devils missed the Champions League qualifiers. .
Pogba is not the only newcomer to the Turin giants, who confirmed on Friday that Argentine star Angel Di Maria was being tested at the club before a free transfer, having left Paris Saint-Germain.
