Pogba To Return To Former Club?

With Paul Pogba entering the final month of his contract at Manchester United, reports suggest that the Frenchman could be making a possible return to his former club.

Messi's Next Club Already Confirmed?

Pogba has had an erratic season at United, with the central midfielder remaining among the top assist providers in the Premier League despite suffering from hamstring and calf injuries.

It seems the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner is set to call time on his tumultuous six-year stint at Old Trafford when his deal with the Red Devils concludes next month, and according to Goal, the France international has been offered a contract by a former club of his.

Juventus have reportedly offered the 29-year-old a three-year deal to return to the Allianz Stadium. That contract would tie Pogba down until the end of the 2024/25 season, and would be worth €7.5 million (R126 million) a year, with multiple bonuses included.

However, that annual salary is significantly lower than the €11 million (R184 million) a year the United academy graduate is reportedly asking for.

While there is a romantic element to Pogba returning to the club where he enjoyed arguably his best football, he would be joining a team that has been in a steady decline in recent seasons.

Pogba lifted four consecutive Scudetto titles while playing for the Old Lady between 2012 and 2016, and also captured two Coppa Italias and two Supercoppa Italianas during his time in Turin.

Although the Frenchman's return to the Allianz Stadium would be lauded by the Bianconeri fanbase, he runs the risk of returning to a club that is in descent, much like he did when United broke the world record for a transfer fee to bring him back to the north of England in 2016.

Here are 10 players confirmed to be leaving their respective clubs at the end of the 2021/22 season:
