Manchester United looking to smash British transfer record with £60m bid for midfield powerhouse

Posted by

Manchester United are intent on bringing Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford and have made an eye-watering bid for his services.

The French international spent three years at United between 2009 and 2012 before being allowed to leave for Juventus on a free transfer.

He has since gone on to become one of Europe’s most high-profile central midfielders, having won a remarkable four consecutive Serie A titles with the Old Lady of Italian football.

His performances have clearly impressed new United boss Jose Mourinho, with The Sun reporting that the Portuguese coach has green-lighted a £60 million bid to bring the midfielder back to the Premier League.

The tabloid report that the ex-Chelsea boss sees the 23-year-old as a crucial building block in his anticipated overhaul at Old Trafford as he seeks to help the Red Devils rediscover their lost lustre.

Pogba featured 35 times for Juve in the Italian top flight last season, contributing 12 assists and scoring eight goals.
