Paul Pogba has verbally agreed to join Juventus for a second time as his Manchester United contract winds down, according to The Guardian's Fabrizio Romano.

The Frenchman will take home a net salary of €8 million per season before bonuses - a significant drop from his income at the Red Devils - to ensure his return to Turin. United recently confirmed Pogba will be a free agent when his deal expires at the end of June.

The 29-year-old will be under contract at Juventus for four years, ESPN's Julien Laurens reports. His Bianconeri comeback appeared inevitable when he apparently rejected interest from Manchester City due to fears over an "unbearable" backlash for switching between crosstown rivals.

Paris Saint-Germain were also linked to a potential move for Pogba, but those rumors cooled when sporting director Leonardo left and Luis Campos was appointed as football adviser.

During his first four-season stint with Juventus, Pogba collected four Serie A titles while winning the Coppa Italia twice and the Supercoppa Italiana twice.

It's understood that Pogba will explain the reasons behind his summer move to Juventus in his documentary, "The Pogmentary," which will be released on Amazon Prime on Friday.
