Man Utd prepare £100m bid for Pogba to fend off Chelsea

Manchester United are preparing to break the transfer record by offering Juventus a £100 million for their superstar midfielder Paul Pogba, according to the Mirror.

The tabloid newspaper goes onto state that the Red Devils have also set aside £300,000 per-week for the France international in order to fend off competition from Chelsea.

Pogba is expected to start for France once again when they take on Germany tonight in the Euro 2016 semi-finals. The Mirror also says that United boss Jose Mourinho see’s the powerful midfielder as a key part of his plans for the season ahead.

Man Utd have already signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer from PSG, Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund and the young defender Eric Bailly from Villarreal this summer.

Pogba previously played for Manchester United and made his senior debut in the 2011-12 season. However, he wanted out of Old Trafford after failing to break into the starting line up and was sold to Juventus the following season.
