The deal, as we`ve already reported, is done, Paul Pogba is now a Manchester United player and officially the most costly player in the world.

Just after 00:30 hours this morning Manchester United confirmed the deal when a glossy video was shown with saw Pogba emerge from the shadows with a Red Devil marked into his air, what followed were several sponsor videos including one with the rapper Stormzy.

But what made Pogba choose a return to Old Trafford when he could have stayed at Juventus or moved to Real Madrid?

Talking to MUTV, Pogba inferred that,

“The time is right to go back to Old Trafford

Before further adding,

‘This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to.’

However, he also confessed that when it came to his career, his mum had told him that a return to Old Trafford was his “destiny”.

And on pitching up at Carrington, the Frenchman further added,

‘I just came back to Carrington. It was like I’d just come back home. I just went for a holiday.’

And as for leaving Juventus, a club for whom he made 178 appearances scoring 34 goals, he poignantly added,

‘Goodbye means nothing, it is the time we spent together that matters. I will bring with me a piece of you and leave you a little piece of me.’

All Pogba now has to live up to is Mourinho`s suggestion that he could be,

“the heart of the club.”

something big to live up to!
