London, Aug 9 (ANI): Manchester United on Tuesday confirmed that Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has signed a five-year deal with the Old Trafford club with the option to extend for a further year.

The 23-year-old, who left United in 2012 due to lack of playing opportunities under former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, agreed the deal for a world record fee of 110 million euros, the Guardian reported.
