Pogba joins Juventus, Krasić departs

French youth international Paul Pogba is "very happy" to have completed his move to Juventus from Manchester United FC, while Miloš Krasić has left the Bianconeri for Fenerbahçe SK.

Juventus have confirmed the signing of midfielder Paul Pogba on a four-year contract and allowed Miloš Krasić to leave the club for Fenerbahçe SK.

Pogba – captain of the France squad which reached the semi-finals of last month's UEFA European Under-19 Championship in Estonia – joins the Bianconeri after choosing not to renew his deal with Manchester United FC.

The former Le Havre AC trainee, 19, who made three Premier League appearances for United following his move to Old Trafford in 2009, told the Juventus website: "I'm very happy to be here, it's a real honour.

"[Michel] Platini, [Pavel] Nedvěd and Roberto Baggio played here, but there also great champions in the current squad and I look forward to playing alongside them."

One player leaving Turin is Krasić, who has made a €7m switch to Fenerbahçe. After scoring seven goals in 33 games in his first season with La Vecchia Signora, the Serbia winger lost his place in the team and was limited to only seven appearances last term.
