Outgoing Manchester United star Paul Pogba, who is leaving Old Trafford as a free agent in 2022, is the latest sporting icon to receive the documentary treatment, with Amazon Prime confirming that a series is on the way.

The World Cup winner became one of the most expensive footballers in history when he rejoined the Red Devils for €105 million (£88m) in 2016, and he is regarded as one of the most gifted midfielders of his generation.

Pogba's personality has won him admiration and derision in equal measure, with younger fans revelling in his stylish dance celebrations while grizzled pundits dismissively snarl in TV studios.

His career will now be the subject of a documentary series, and GOAL brings you all the details, including when it is released, how to watch and more.

What is the Paul Pogba Amazon documentary about?

The documentary, which has been dubbed 'The Pogmentary' by producers, will focus on Paul Pogba, featuring his exploits on the pitch and his life off the pitch.

Georgia Brown, who is head of European originals at Amazon Studios, says that the documentary will provide a glimpse into the "man behind the fame" by looking at his life away from the field of play.

"Paul Pogba is one of the most prominent talents of his time, so we are thrilled to be collaborating with him with an overall deal and his series 'The Pogmentary'," Brown said. 

"We all know Paul for what he can do on a football pitch, but his influence reaches much further, and he is without doubt an icon for an entire generation. Through the unprecedented access afforded to us, Prime Video will show the man behind the fame, delving into his life off the pitch and letting him tell his story in his own words."

There is no shortage of material for the documentary makers to examine, with Pogba leading an eventful and successful career up to this point.

The France international's time at Juventus, his big-money return to Manchester United in 2016 and World Cup triumph with France in 2018 are all fertile ground for exploration. Relationships with different managers such as Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also come up. 

The frequent volleys of criticism he is forced to endure from high-profile pundits such as Graeme Souness and Roy Keane, as well as fans, is also a point of discussion.

At one point in the documentary, Pogba vows to "show Manchester United they made a mistake" in delaying over his contract, showing a glimpse of the thought processes which drive professional footballers.
