French midfielder leaves Old Trafford.
Manchester United have confirmed Paul Pogba has completed his move to Juventus.
Pogba’s future at Old Trafford has been the subject of speculation for some time with a move to Juventus strongly mooted.
United have now confirmed Pogba has sealed his switch to Turin after seeing out his contract at Old Trafford.
Pogba left Le Havre to join United’s youth academy in 2009 and was highly-rated by United’s coaching staff.
United were keen to keep hold of Pogba, but the 19-year-old rejected their offer of a new contract to join Italian champions Juventus.
Pogba made seven appearances for United last season, but the talented midfielder has decided to leave in search of regular first-team football
Sir Alex Ferguson has aimed a swipe at Pogba accusing the French youngster of not showing the club ‘any respect at all.’
“Paul Pogba signed for Juventus a long time ago as far as we’re aware,” Ferguson told MUTV.
“It’s disappointing. I don’t think he showed us any respect at all. To be honest, if they carry on that way, they’re probably better doing it away from us.”

It seems that Sir Alex Ferguson is not all that impressed with Paul Pogba and his advisors and a often churned out rumour about a move to Juventus has finally been put to bed.
The young Frenchman had apparently been dismayed at the lack of first team progress some time ago but the teenager then saw some Premier League action in the second half of last term but clearly it wasn’t enough to prevent the former Le Havre man looking for a move away from Old Trafford.
Pogba arrived at Man United back in October 2009 after a controversial move from France that led to an official complaint from Le Havre in relation to the ‘tapping-up’ of their player. Ferguson is probably wishing he never bothered signing the French Under 19 international now.
