Paul Pogba has completed his move back to Manchester United. The Frenchman has signed a five-year contract with the Red Devils. The contract also has an option of extending it for another year.
The most-hyped transfer saga ahead of the start of the new season has finally come to an end. British media believed that Pogba's transfer fee has eclipsed the world-record signing amount of £85 million, which Real Madrid paid to Tottenham Hotspur for Gareth Bale.
United have reportedly shelled out a staggering £89.3 million for the talented midfielder.
Pogba was delighted to reunite with his former club and stated that he felt like he was on a holiday and he came back home again. He also said that he was meant to be here just like his mother told him.
"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 José Mourinho. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Juventus and have some fantastic memories of a great club with players that I count as friends," Pogba was quoted as saying in a club statement.
"But I feel the time is right to go back to Old Trafford. I always enjoyed playing in front of the fans and can't wait to make my contribution to the team. This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to in the game."
Here is Pogba's first interview after he joined Manchester United:
Mourinho had already confirmed the acquisition of Pogba ahead of the start of the new Premier League season and he was equally delighted to have someone like the 23-year old on board.
"Paul is one of the best players in the world and will be a key part of the United team I want to build here for the future. He is quick, strong, scores goals and reads the game better than many players much older than he is," Mourinho said.
"At 23, he has the chance to make that position his own here over many years. He is young and will continue to improve; he has the chance to be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond."
