Paul Pogba is a French professional footballer who plays for Italian club Juventus in Serie A. Pogba, who was named the young player of the tournament at the World Cup 2014 moved to Turin two years ago following a frustrating spell with United and joined Juve on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2012.
The 21-year-old midfielder’s previous deal with Juventus was due to expire in 2016. He emerged as a target of several top European clubs, including former side Manchester United and Chelsea but Juve were desperate to tie the 21-year-old down to a long-term deal.
With all the desperation shown by Juve, Pogba has signed a new deal with the Italian club, which runs until 2019. The new deal will reportedly see Pogba’s existing £23,000-a-week wages trebled. Juve club administrator Giuseppe Marotta said during Juve’s shareholders meeting in Turin on Friday: “We have just signed Paul Pogba’s renewal until 2019.”
