The Frenchman was signed by the Seria A giants, Juventus, on a free transfer from Manchester United. In the last summer, he was signed back by the Red Devils for a record 89.3 million pounds. FIFA is currently investing on the record breaking transfer and has asked information about the transfer from the Premier League club.
Transfer from Manchester United:-
Pogba didn’t get many changes to play for Manchester United. The, then, manager of United, Sir Alex Ferguson, didn’t consider the player to be that special. He had a fallout with the agent of the player, who was keen on increasing the wage of the player. Sir Ferguson, as gritty a person he is, allowed the player to move to Juventus on a free transfer. Pogba, however, didn’t want to leave the club and his mother has said in an interview that he was crying in the office of the manager. But, Pogba had no choice and had to leave the club.
Pogba’s return to Manchester United:-
When Jose Mourinho took over the reins of the club in the last summer, he immediately had a go at Pogba. Given the star player he was at the club, the club from Turin had set a price tag of 89.3 million pounds for the player. Unaffected by the price tag, Manchester United signed the player on a record breaking deal. He has now successful established himself at the club again, and slowing and steadily getting into his groove. This transfer was a huge profit for Juventus who had signed the player for free.
Probe on player’s agent:-
The player agent was also the one making huge profit in this signing. Pogba’s agent Raiola, supposedly, made around 20 million pounds in the huge transfer saga. However, a book released in Germany named “The Football Leaks: The dirty secrets of football” claims that the player agent has earned 40 million pounds in his commission. This claim from the book has taken the world by storm.
According to sources, FIFA has asked Manchester United to give details about the transfer. They have not given an official word to the investigation, but, are however, doing thorough study of the transfer.
A statement from football's governing body on Tuesday said, "We can confirm that FIFA/TMS has been requesting information on the transfer. We have no further comments at this stage."
All international transfers must be authorised by FIFA, so Pogba's transfer was approved by FIFA in August, using its International Transfer Matching System (TMS).
Manchester United’s side of story:-
Manchester United insist that FIFA has had all relevant documents since the transfer was completed.
A statement by the club said, "We don't comment on contracts. FIFA have had the documents since the transfer in August."
