Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is to appear in his own docuseries, The Pogmentary, for Amazon Prime Video.

Amazon has announced details of a deal with Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba that will see him appear in his own docuseries for streaming service Prime Video.

The Pogmentary promises to give viewers a "unique and intimate" insight into the daily life of the 28-year-old Frenchman, who was at one time the most expensive player ever in world football.

The series is expected to be made in the French language but will also be offered in other languages, including English, when it launches in 2022.

Georgia Brown, head of European originals at Amazon Studios, said: "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.

"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."

Thomas Dubois, head of French originals at Amazon, added: "Paul Pogba has such an inspiring story of how, with hard work, passion, and the support of a loving family, any goal can be within reach.

"This is exactly the kind of story we want to tell on Prime Video; and exactly the type of ambitious, once-in-a-generation talented people we want to highlight in our docuseries.

"This unique, behind-the-scenes look at Paul Pogba's life will captivate Prime members in France and around the world."

The Pogmentary is the latest sports documentary to come from Amazon, who have also released behind-the-scenes series with Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Leeds United, the Australian cricket team and Sergio Ramos.
