Paul Pogba and Juventus have reached an agreement over the deal that will bring the French midfielder to Turin this summer.

The former Manchester United star is a free agent after running down his contract at Old Trafford and has been consistently linked with a return to the Italian Serie A club, where he enjoyed a first spell.

After months of speculation, the deal is finally agreed, and Pogba is expected in Turin on Saturday for a medical and to formally sign a four-year contract.

According to Sky Sports, the deal has been agreed upon between both parties, although the salary details were not revealed.

The 2018 World Cup winner spent four years at Juventus before rejoining United for £89million in 2016. 

His initial transfer to United was greeted with excitement, as he was considered one of the best midfield players at the time. But after spending six seasons in the northwest club, Pogba is leaving Man United with almost nothing to show. Injuries and inconsistency marred his time at Old Trafford, leading fans and pundits to question his effort and determination.

He scored 39 goals in 226 appearances in all competitions, but only once reached double figures in league goals, 13 in 2018-19 – a total he reached twice in his last two seasons at Juventus.
