Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United this summer , the French player and the club have confirmed.
United academy graduate Pogba left Old Trafford to join Juventus as a free agent in 2012, only to return four years later for a then world-record fee of £89m.
He however had a bitter-sweet relationship with the club, with fans unimpressed with his stay at the club.
Manchester United on Wednesday, June 1, confirmed he will leave for nothing for the second time when his deal expires this month.
“The club can announce that Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United at the end of June, upon the expiry of his contract,” United said at the start of a lengthy send-off statement on the club’s website.
“Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Paul on his successful career, and thank him for his contributions to Manchester United.
“We wish him all the best for the next steps on a remarkable journey.”
He also confirmed his exit from the club with a tweet.

A key part of the triumphant FA Youth Cup side of 2011, the midfielder joined Juventus the following year and enjoyed a medal-laden time in Turin.
