The other two brothers are not as much talented as Paul is and do not play for any magnificent clubs.

Paul Pogba started playing football from a very young age. He was a part 0f US Roissy-en-Brie’s youth team and played almost seven years for the club. However, he then joined US Torcy for a year.
Pogba was a famous talent among youth clubs and hence a tug of war went on between the clubs for him. Within a year Le Havre signed him as a part of the youth team and gave rise to a controversy with US Torcy.
In 2009, Paul announced that he will be leaving Le Havre to join Manchester United’s youth academy. Le Havre reacted negatively and criticized both Pogba family and the English club.
A deal was settled between the two clubs and Pogba was free to go. He played in the Youth League until 2011 when he was promoted to the first team by Sir Alex Fergusen.
However, the experienced coach couldn’t provide him enough opportunities in the first team and so the player left for Juventus in 2012 as his contract with the club ended.
His move to Italy was a great decision by him as he flourished under the Italian coach Antonio Conte. Pogba won 4 consecutive Serie A titles during his stay at the club.
His excellent performances earned him a title of Best Young Player in 2013. Moreover, he became an integral part of Juventus’ 2015 side that won a domestic double and progressed to the UEFA Champions League final where they were eventually beaten by Lionel Messi‘s FC Barcelona in Berlin.
In 2016, Jose Mourinho was appointed as Manchester United’s first team coach and he forced the club to bring back the departed French man. Pogba was a star by then and had 3 years left on his contract.
His return cost the club almost $123 million which was a world record transfer fee as Pogba overtook Gareth Bale as the most expensive football player in the world.
Currently, the record is held by Neymar Jr. His move from FC Barcelona to Paris Saint Germain in 2017 cost the club an estimated $258 million.
Manchester United signed Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2016 and they were supposed to run riots in the Premier League. However, the start was not a very good one for the Frenchman and he was criticized heavily.
It took a while for him to settle down before making an impact. He lead the club to a Europa League trophy and a couple of other small trophies as well that were enough for a fallen Manchester United to raise their morale again.
In 2018, Pogba was a crucial part of the world cup winning French team. He also scored two crucial goals and inspired the team to victory.
