3rd August 2012 is a date that might not be that significant for Manchester United supporters.

However, it`s significance could become paramount when I point out that it was on this very day, back in 2012, the Serie A club, Juventus, announced the signing of a young midfielder that would become the focal point of media attention this summer.

Of course, the young midfielder Juventus announced had decided to sign on the dotted line for them was none other than Paul Pogba.

After failing to make the breakthrough and having become a little downhearted at life on the side-lines with Manchester United, 19-year-old Pogba was sent on his way with Juventus paying Manchester United a fee rumoured to be in the region of £800,000.

Now wouldn`t it be ironic if four years to the day after leaving Old Trafford and signing for Juventus, Paul Pogba made an emotional return but, this time, a fee said to be in the region of a world record fee of £100 million!

What a strange world we live in!
