Paul Pogba Takes Huge Pay Cut At Juventus As Contract Details Revealed

Paul Pogba is set to accept a steep drop in pay when he rejoins Juventus following his departure from Manchester United.

Pogba, 29, parted ways with United when his contract with the Red Devils, thought to be worth around £290,000 a week, expired at the end of last season.

He is currently a free agent but is set to rejoin Juventus, where he spent four successful years before his return to United in 2016.

Pogba is set to sign a three-year deal with Juventus with the option of a further year, according to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, as reported by Football Italia.

He is expected to earn a base salary of around €8m (£6.8m) per season plus a potential €2m (£1.7m) in performance-related bonuses.

Should Pogba be paid that full amount including bonuses, he would earn just north of £160,000 per week in Turin – a significant pay cut from his time at Old Trafford.

Pogba touched down in Italy on Friday to complete a medical with Juventus.

The France international was mobbed by fans of the Italian club after arriving in a private jet.

He remains a popular figure at Juventus, having scored 34 goals in 178 games during his first spell at the club during which he won four Serie A titles.

It was a far cry from the hostile atmosphere Pogba experienced during his final months at Old Trafford.

In total, Pogba managed a disappointing return of 39 goals in 226 games for United, who paid a club-record £89.3m fee to sign the midfielder from Juventus in 2016.

He is now hoping for a fresh start on his return to the Italian club, who face Mexican side Deportivo Guadalajara in their opening pre-season friendly on July 23.
