Paul Pogba to officially become a Juventus player on July 1st?

Paul Pogba; the future looked good for him at Manchester United (AP)

It has been claimed by the Daily Mail this evening that the French U19 international has chosen to sign for Juventus this summer, instead of staying at Manchester United. Pogba looks to be on a contract that will see him to received around £20,000 a week. The deal will become official on July 1st, after his contract with Manchester United has expired, and he becomes a free agent.

Sir Alex Ferguson branded Pogba as one of the best player to come out of the youth development squad within Manchester United. Pogba made a few appearances for the Manchester side this season, possibly to try to placate him to stay in Manchester. It now looks like his agent, Mino Raiola has managed to persuade the player to move on to Italy, where he may get more of a chance to get into the first team.

Personally I have always known he would be leaving as he really did not look to be happy when representing Manchester United. There was talk that Pogba wanted a bumper deal at Manchester United, something which has never been confirmed or denied.

It really does not look good for Manchester United’s youth squad at the moment, with Ravel Morrison, who left for West Ham in January, Ritchie De Laet and Matty James who left to sign for Leicester City a few weeks ago, Ezekiel Fryers seems to not want to sign a new deal, and now the loss of Paul Pogba. Is there something wrong with the type of youth Manchester United sign in their ranks? Or is it just the case of when a player makes it to the first team, they assume they have made the grade and therefore command a better contract from the club? Who knows but I am sure there will be plenty more youth development at Manchester United in the years to come.

Good luck Pogba!

I really doubt if he ever gets near the first team at Juventus. Most likely to be loaned out.

I think all the media attention made him regard himself as a big star and deserve first team automatically.

The winner here is his agent.

Well done for stating the obvious, but I do not see what your point is!!

His point is that your article is a pile of sh*t as Is your assertion that their is something wrong with a youth academy that won its league. Do your research before spouting nonsense pal.

I did not ascertain that there was something wrong with the youth team. If you read and understood it you will have seen it was a question! I did all of my research before writing what I did. Not my fault you seem to lack the intelligence to be able to understand is it!!
