Pogba is on the verge of completing his return to Juventus

Paul Pogba was filmed refusing to sign a Manchester United shirt as he landed in Turin to complete his return to Juventus.

Pogba left United at the end of the season after the two parties failed to agree on a new deal but left under a dark cloud as fans questioned his commitment to the club.

The Frenchman also revealed some home truths in his recent docuseries, ‘The Pogmentary’ which left fans of the Red Devils even angrier.

Pogba was greeted by thousands of fans

Having landed in Italy as he prepares to return to the club he left for United in 2016, Pogba was mobbed by thousands of fans to welcome him back.

Those there to see him wanted him to take selfies and grab the 29-year-old’s signature and one person asked if Pogba could sign the top of his former employers.

But after taking an initial look at the shirt, Pogba wagged his finger and declined as he went back to greeting fans with Juventus kits.

Pogba takes major pay cut to rejoin the Old Lady

In order to finalise his move back to Juve Pogba has reportedly had to take a significant pay cut and is set to earn a rumoured £6.8m a year on a three-year contract.

That roughly equates to around £160,00 a week – far less than the £300,000 that United offered for him to stay at the club but by that point, Pogba’s mind had been made up.

In his first spell at the Italian giants Pogba made 178 appearances for the club, scoring 34 times and winning the Scudetto on four separate occasions.
