Man Utd midfielder joining Italian champions

Updated: May 8, 2012

Young Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has agreed to join Italian Serie A champions Juventus on a four-year deal after carefully considering his future for the last month. Pogba will leave Manchester United on a free transfer this summer.

The eighteen year old French talent has been publicly considering contract offers from both Manchester United and Juventus and Sir Alex Ferguson is said to be furious after his teenage midfield sensation opted for Italy rather than staying at old Trafford.

According to reports in the Daily Mail Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is set to pocket a whopping £1.7million from the deal while Pogba himself nets just £20k a week.

After a few tenacious and spirited displays from the youngster, Manchester United fans could well be disappointed to see another hot prospect move on without a reasonable transfer fee. As Manchester Uniteds ranks grow more depleted fans will be expecting lots of activity this summer.
