Pogba signs for Man Utd

France international signs five-year deal

Paul Pogba has rejoined Manchester United from Juventus in a world-record £89m deal.

The France international, who has signed a five-year deal with the Red Devils, says "the time is right to go back" to the club he left in 2012.

The 23-year-old becomes new manager Jose Mourinho's fourth signing at United, following Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly, Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Armenia forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan through the doors at Old Trafford.

United will also pay Juventus a further £4.5m if Pogba meets certain performance-related targets, and another £4.5m if he extends his contract at the end of five years.

The transfer fee surpasses the £85m that Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Wales international Gareth Bale in 2013.

Pogba, who won four titles with Juve after joining the Serie A club four years ago on a free transfer, says he wants to add the Premier League title to his list of honours.

"The thing with me is I only think about the pitch," Pogba told MUTV. "I want to do great, I want to be one of the best.

"I want to win titles, I want to achieve things and that's all - that's why I came here, just to do this, to become one of the best and to win titles because I know this club has to win titles.

"This club is created to win titles, to win things, to win big things. That's why. I am focused about this and that's it. I'm just ready to go and work on that and just kill it."
