One of the most talented teams in the world, Manchester United recently hired successful manager Jose Mourinho on May 27, 2016, to lead the football club. He has wasted little time in adding more talent to the roster. In August 2016, Manchester United acquired Paul Pogba from the Italian championship team Juventus.

Manchester United signed the 23-year-old Pogba to a five-year contract with an additional one-year option after agreeing to pay a record-breaking €105 million (£89 million) over a two-year period. The previous record was the £85 million reportedly paid by Real Madrid to Tottenham to acquire Gareth Bale in 2013.

Four years earlier, Pogba had played for Manchester United but left for a nominal fee. He would go on to win four Series A titles and two Coppa Italia titles. His growing reputation convinced Manchester United to pay the record-breaking amount to bring him back.
