French sports network Le10Sport have said the Paris-based side have agreed a deal with Juventus, and Pogba will move to the reigning Ligue 1 champions this summer. It is thought the move has been made easier because Mino Raiola, Pogba’s agent, also represents Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Maxwell, and Gregory van der Wiel – who all already ply their trade in Paris.
Pogba has reportedly been offered a £10 million per year contract, a deal that would more than double his existing £4.5 million salary with the Turin club.
The fee has not been stated, presumably due to PSG’s ongoing battle with UEFA about their restrictive ‘Fair Play’ rules.
The news will come as a blow to Man Utd, who had been hopeful of luring the 21 year old back to Old Trafford.
