Pogba Slated to Join Juventus in a Couple of Weeks

Juventus will most likely wait until July to announce the return of Paul Pogba for technical reasons. However, the agreement with the midfield has de facto been struck. The Bianconeri do not fear other sides interjecting their pursuit. Not even PSG should they eventually manage to win over Zinedine Zidane, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The midfielder is currently on vacation in Miami, where he met Paulo Dybala, among other personalities. But the two friends will not play together, as the striker is Inter-bound. The upcoming documentary on his life, which will be released in two days, might drop a hint about the Frenchman’s future.

Juventus have set up the medicals for Pogba and his presentation for early July, when the squad will resume practicing. The star will pen a four-year contract, a longer deal than the original plan. He will be tied to the Bianconeri until he is 33. He will earn €8M per year plus €2M of easily achievable add-ons. Thanks to the fiscal benefits for foreigners moving to Italy, it will weigh €15M on the balance sheets and not €19/20M as it would do under normal circumstances.

The front office and the entourage of the player are ironing out the final details, such as the signing bonus and the commissions. But the delay mostly hinges on the fact that the club wants to register the costs in the 2022/2023 session, which will kick off at the end of June.

Our Take on Juventus Bringing Back Pogba

The star showed meaningful signs of decline last season, and he has dealt with multiple injuries during his time in England, but the Old Lady is starving for star power and quality in the midfield. It is not a risk-free addition, but it is worth the gamble on a Bosman move.
