What a waste of a career and I include his return to us in that but what exactly does he think he'll achieve at Juventus a 2nd time around? They're basically where we were 6 years ago

What are the chances he is moving to a Juve who are at the same stage as the Utd he moved back to?

Kind of telling that Real, Barca, PSG, City said no thanks.

I think the Italian style may be suitable for him actually. I will not be surprised if he does well and everyon starts moaning that United did a big mistake by losing him.But then I think Lukaku will do very well in Italy too.

Well that confirms Pogbas irrelevance in the history books. What a boring and uninspiring move that is.

gonna be awkward when all the back home quotes when he returned to United resurfaces. It takes away 90 percent of the bullshit spiel he can use now

Thinking about it I’d have actually preferred he went to City. At least there he could have proved something. This move literally proves nothing except how shite the Italian league is.

Isn't it just. I mean he apparently turned City down and he's never a Barca midfielder but on a free transfer and neither Real or PSG were interested says it all

From United to Juventus (for free) then back to United (for £90m) then back to Juve again (for free again). Also, he joined the same club TWICE and left the same club for free Twice.

I bet there isn't a footballer on earth that had a career trajectory quite like Paul Pogba.

Juve are laughing financially, but I really wonder what type of player he will be now compared to what he was when they signed him.

I honestly think if he had stayed, and played with our leaders at the time he would have turned out differently for us. When he was at Juve he had Buffon, Chiellini, Bonucci who set the tone in the dressing room etc and he didn't step out of line. When he came back, who were our leaders to keep him in check?

He’s won everything there is to win at Juventus already apart from the champions league which I don’t foresee them winning anytime soon. It’s a backwards move for him whether this was his only choice or not. It’s not a new challenge, just a comfort zone. I imagine he will feel comfortable there so he might play a little more consistently well than he has done for us.

Let's be real, Pep would never sign someone like Pogba who dallies on the ball and does feck all without it.

The media does that about all of our players. Fletcher played well for Stoke for a year or two and we were apparently idiots for letting him go. Same when Welbeck left. Same when Hernandez had a good few months in Germany. And with Alex's Sanchez.

When our players are inconsistent, they're criticised for not being good enough. When they leave, their occasional good performances become proof that we're stupid for letting them leave.

I still refuse to believe City were genuinely interested. I think it was either City trolling, baseless media speculation or Pogba trying to panic United into a bigger offer.

And who are the leaders at Juve now? Such a sideways Move for him but then I guess when your options are as limited as they are
