Can Juventus’ Paul Pogba (29) add strength to the team?
The British media ‘Daily Mail’ said on the 2nd (hereinafter Korean time), “Juventus invested 31 million pounds (about 47.2 billion won) to bring Pogba. Nevertheless, the club is angry that Pogba did not play even a minute. “We are considering letting him go or terminating his contract with the possibility of moving to MLS,” the안전놀이터 report said.
However, Juventus chief executive Francesco Calvo denied the rumors. According to the British media ‘Daily Mail’ on the 8th, he said, “We have no plans to terminate Pogba’s contract. We want to refute this rumor.”
“Pogba is an important player for us. Injuries are part of the game. He is training well and we are waiting for him.”
Juventus announced the return of Pogba in July last year. Pogba, who returned to his parents’ home after six years, signed a contract until June 2026.
Pogba, whose contract with Manchester United expired, returned to his old team after six years as a free agent (FA). Pogba, a former Manchester United youth player, wore a Juventus uniform in 2012 and returned to Manchester United from the 2016-17 season. At the time of his transfer to Manchester United, the transfer fee was estimated at 89 million pounds (approximately 135.7 billion won), the highest in the world.
However, there were regrets at Man Utd. He was controversial during his time with manager José Mourinho, including causing a feud. Due to his injuries, he also failed to condition himself.
Pogba has yet to make a comeback in a Juventus uniform. This is because he injured his meniscus in July of last year. Pogba, who has been rehabilitating, was named on the bench against Monza earlier this month, but his debut was delayed after his soreness confirmed once again.
The media said, “Juventus spent £31 million to sign Pogba. This is the amount of £7 million in annual salary and bonuses for four years.”
Rumors arose that he could be let go because he could not add strength to the team despite spending a large amount of money. However, according to the club, the partnership between Pogba and Juventus is expected to continue.
