Juventus Cleared Over Pogba Transfer

Juventus have claimed that FIFA has cleared the Serie A club of any wrongdoing and subsequently not handed them any penalty or fine over Paul Pogba’s move to Manchester United.

World football’s governing body had launched an investigation into Juve’s conduct over the sale of the France international, who joined United in the summer of 2016 for a then-record transfer of around £89.5 million.

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli announced at a shareholders meeting: “The FIFA investigation into the Pogba deal is concluded, [there will be] no penalties or fines for Juventus.”

Agnelli also expressed his pride at the club having won six Serie A titles in a row, adding: “On behalf of the club, supporters, team and technical staff, we are extremely proud about winning six straight Scudetto titles.

“At this club we believe the greatest success is always the next one, our challenges is to prove ourselves again in Italy and Europe.”
