7. Paul Pogba – Juventus to Manchester United
On 8 August 2016, Pogba returned to former club, Manchester United, on a five-year contract for a then-record for highest football transfer fee at €105 million, plus bonuses of €5 million, surpassing the former record holder Gareth Bale.
The Football Association announced that Pogba would be suspended for Manchester United’s opening Premier League fixture of the 2016–17 season against Bournemouth, due to two yellow cards he had accumulated in the previous season’s edition of the Coppa Italia with Juventus. On 19 August, he made his first appearance since returning to the club in a 2–0 home victory over Southampton in the Premier League.
