Paul Pogba signs 5-year deal for record fee

CEBU CITY – French football superstar Paul Pogba signs 5-year deal for record feehas signed a five-year contract worth a reported 89 million pounds ($116.4 million, 105 million euros).
Pogba said that his return to Manchester United from Juventus is “the right club” for him to achieve everything he hope in the game.
“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 (United manager) Jose Mourinho,” he said.
He will become United’s fourth close-season signing after Ivorian centre-back Eric Bailly, Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The 23-year-old moved to Italy from Old Trafford on a free transfer in 2012.

Read his full statement:
I just wanted to thank all the fans who have left comments on my pages about my transfer, I took the time to read everything and I thank you sincerely for your account and your support, however for contractual reasons it was just impossible for me to answer you.
I’ve been thinking a lot before accepting this transfer, I had to just take it and there was a lot of work to do. The wait has been long and tedious as I needed to take account of everything.
The decision to change club is difficult to explain in a few words but it is a decision that only comes from the heart.
Juventus will always be in my heart, I’ll miss her and I always will. I will always remain grateful to the club, to the team and fans. I hope you will understand and respect my decision. Friendship is to understand and be understood.
I just wanted to thank with respect clubs that have shown interest in hiring me. Gracias, thank you!
Leave Manchester at the age of 18 had been a split decision between the club and myself, it was the right decision to make. Now it’s time to come back and start with Manchester United, Old Trafford here I come!
