Paul Pogba has been handed the iconic number 10 at Juventus following his return to Turin from Manchester United.

The Frenchman completed his long-awaited move to the Serie A giants this week, signing a four-year deal with the Old Lady.

Pogba joins the club he left in 2016 after his contract expired at Manchester United after a difficult second spell at Old Trafford. Despite links with Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, the World Cup winner opted for a return to Turin.

Commenting on his return to the club, the France star said via his Instagram page: “Back like I never left.”

During his first spell at Juventus, Pogba wore the number six shirt for three seasons before taking the number 10 in his final season.

Following the recent exit of Paulo Dybala, Pogba will once again wear the illustrious number 10, as once worn by club legends such as Roberto Baggio and Alessandro Del Piero.

Baggio scored 115 goals in 200 games for Juventus, helping win the UEFA Cup in 1993 and a Serie A and Coppa Italia double in 1995.

Del Piero spent 19 years at the club, scoring 289 goals in 702 games while winning six Serie A titles and the Champions League in 1996.

During his first spell at Turin, Pogba scored 34 goals and assisted 40 in 177 appearances across all competitions. It will be hoped that he can replicate that form in his second spell.
