Paul Pogba completed his move from Juventus to Manchester United for the record transfer fee. Pogba left Old Trafford in July 2012 after the then United manager Sir Alex Ferguson refused to agree to Raiola’s demands for an improved contract. Juventus paid them just £800,000 in compensation four years ago…
Same as after Gonzalo Higuaín tranfer from Napoli to Juventus I made Football Manager 2016 simulation of Pogba’s career.
He becomes United’s fourth signing since Jose Mourinho was appointed as manager, following defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The previous transfer record paid by a British club was the £59.7m United forked out for Argentina winger Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid in August 2014.
The transfer was officialy confirmed during the night from Monday to Tuesday by Manchester Untied. #POGBACK
