Wed 01 June 2022:
Manchester United has announced that midfielder Paul Pogba will depart the club when his contract ends at the end of this month.
“The Frenchman has enjoyed a long association with United, having joined the club’s Academy from Le Havre at the age of just 16,” said a statement released by the club on Wednesday.
The French World Cup-winning midfielder re-signed for United from the Italian club Juventus in 2016 but failed to deliver on his huge promise, often struggling for consistency at Old Trafford, home to the football club.
After coming through the youth ranks, Pogba left United for Juventus on a free transfer in 2012 before being lured back by manager Jose Mourinho, who paid a then world-record fee of 89 million pounds ($111.96m) for him.
Pogba’s arrival was meant to signal a new era at United – a club that was struggling to qualify for the Champions League, let alone be considered title contenders – but he was unable to deliver consistency despite winning the League Cup and Europa League in his first season.
“It was a low-key end to a United career that had brought so many individual high moments, so many beautiful goals, assists and pieces of skill,” United added.
