Paul Pogba may have killed all speculation over his future, by signing a new contract which is designed to keep him at Juventus until 2019.
Since joining the Italian champions upon the expiry of his Manchester United deal in 2012, the 21-year-old has gone on to establish himself as one of the best midfielders in world football. Ironically, this is now a position his former club are desperate to reinforce, and had he stayed at Old Trafford, it is almost certain he would now be considered one of their key first team players.
Indeed, the Reds have been linked with swallowing their pride and making a bid to lure Pogba back to England, whilst Chelsea and Manchester City are also said to be keen admirers. However, the France international has now ended all speculation over his immediate future by signing a new contract with the Bianconeri which is expected to keep him in Turin for another five years.
Pogba, who was named as the best young player of the tournament at the World Cup Finals in the summer, has formed an impressive partnership with Andrea Pirlo in the Juve midfield, which has helped them win the Serie A title in both of the last two seasons. It is believed his new wage will treble his £23,000 weekly salary, which is still less than he could have earned in England.
Will this end the speculation over Pogba, or will he still be linked with a return to England in the coming months? Let us know what you think by joining in the discussion.
