Paul Pogba rejoins Manchester United….

Paul Pogba said “the time is right to go back to Old Trafford” after completing his world-record £89m transfer to Manchester United. The 23-year-old midfielder returns after four years away, having left United for Juventus for £1.5m in 2012. Pogba, who signed a five-year deal, added: “This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to.” Manager Jose Mourinho said the France international could be “the heart of the club” for the next decade. United will pay the Italian champions 105m euros for Pogba, plus 5m euros (£4.5m) in performance-related bonuses and other costs, including 5m euros if Pogba signs a new contract. It surpasses Wales forward Gareth Bale’s £85m move to Real Madrid from Spurs in 2013 as the biggest transfer deal in history. Speaking to MUTV Pogba said: “I just came back to Carrington. It was like I’d just come back home. I just went for a holiday.”
