Paul Pogba's Incredible 15/16 Season Highlights Show Why Manchester United Paid £89 Million For Him
Paul Pogba's incredible season at Juventus in 2015/2016 shows exactly why Manchester United paid £89 million for him.
Pogba came through the United academy but moved to Juventus in 2012 in search of first-team football.
He established himself as one of their key midfielders and played with confidence like no other in his final campaign.
Aged just 22, he was given the iconic number 10 shirt and it's fair to say he lived up to the hype.
The end of 2015 saw Pogba named in UEFA's Team Of The Year as well as the FIFPro World XI.
Pogba thrived in a more advanced position and dominated games in attack, scoring eight goals and registering 10 assists in Serie A.
Juventus won the title once again and Pogba jetted to the European Championships with France, helping them reach the final.
August 2016 would see him return to United for a then-world record fee of £89 million after months of speculation.

As great as Xavi was, he's a massive clown for saying Pogba is more 'physical' than he is talented. Not that many players in his position can chat to him in terms of pure ability on the ball https://t.co/zbpl9MggQF- Dön (@FreeAgentCF2) February 23, 2021
Pogba is in his fifth season back at United and despite rumours of being unsettled, he's enjoying one of his best seasons in England.
While he is currently out with an injury, Pogba is an important part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad.
His contract expires in 2022 and agent Mino Raiola has indicated his time at Old Trafford could soon come to an end.
