As the sands of time ebb away on his six-year stay at Manchester United, Paul Pogba is reportedly on the verge of securing a move to Italy.

The World Cup champion, who cost United a club-record £89.3 million, is out of contract on June 30 and can join any team he wants. His time at Old Trafford, though, will not be fondly remembered, as he struggled to find his best form.

Indeed, he will seek to restart his career by separating himself from the Red Devils.

As such, a number of big-name clubs have been mentioned as suitors for Pogba. Frequently linked with moves to Spain, Real Madrid and Barcelona have, at various times, been touted as prospective destinations.

However, there is also interest from Paris Saint-Germain, which could allow Pogba the chance to play senior football in his homeland for the first time in his career.

Earlier this week, Manchester City were strongly linked with the 29-year-old. The move from Old Trafford to the Etihad is not a well-trodden path and such a move would certainly attract a lot of attention.

Indeed, pundit Jamie Redknapp suggested any deal for Pep Guardiola to sign him was a “no brainer”.

However, Pogba has reportedly turned down the move and it seems to go against the idea of staying in the Premier League.

Star taking 50 per cent pay cut

Instead, it now appears that Pogba is on the brink of finalising a return to his former club, Juventus.

As per the Daily Mirror, Juve are close to agreeing an £8.3m a year deal with the player. That will see him earn a tidy £160,000 a week deal, as well as a significant signing-on bonus.

The package, however, is dwarfed by the reported £350,000 a week that Pogba has collected at United since 2016.

Nonetheless, that is a move Pogba appears willing to make, especially given that it was where he played the best football of his career.

Furthermore, Juve are also reported to have sold Pogba an exciting vision of life back in Turin.

They are reported to have told him they plan to build the team around him and January signing Dusan Vlahovic.

And despite his struggles at Manchester United, they still see the player as one of the world’s elite midfielders.

A Juventus return makes a lot of sense for Paul Pogba.

Moving back to Turin is certainly a signing that ticks plenty of boxes.

Juventus have shown themselves in recent years to be the masters of the free transfer. Indeed, they have brought in a number of top stars as free agents.

Having pocketed the best part of £90m from his sale in 2016, bringing him back as a free agent will be music to their ears.

And the move also gives Pogba a great chance to resurrect his career in Serie A.

Paul Pogba will have to take a huge pay cut if he wants to return to Juventus.

Manchester United’s Paul Pogba will reportedly have to take a sizeable pay cut if he wants to rejoin Juventus this summer.

He previously looked like a world beater for the Bianconeri. But returning to where he was at his happiest certainly makes a great deal of sense.

If they can get him back playing at the levels that convinced United to shell out big money, then Juve will be getting themselves a great deal.

United, meanwhile, are reportedly closing in on Pogba’s replacement with a staggering deal looking likely.
