Paul Pogba

Once upon a time, Paul Pogba was the most expensive signing in the world. He started his professional career with Le Havre. Then, in 2009 he moved to Manchester United with their youth academy. However, he joined under controversial circumstances.

He remained in the junior squad until 2011 when Sir Alex Ferguson promoted him. He had a few games with the team but a year later, there was drama. It transpired in 2012 that he had signed for Juventus. United manager Alex Ferguson confirmed that Pogba had left the club after not signing a new contract.

He remained in the Serie A until the 2016-17 season when he was brought back to United. Since then, the Frenchman has remained with the Red Devils.
