Paul Pogba to Manchester United: £105m transfer to be completed this weekend

Posted by

Manchester United are reportedly on the verge of completing the transfer of midfielder Paul Pogba in a world record £105m move.

The French international has been strongly linked with a move back to Old Trafford this summer, but it appears as though a deal is going to be struck imminently.

According to The Sun, the 23-year-old will sign a five-year deal worth £202,000 per week when he returns from his post-Euro 2016 holiday.

The British newspaper adds that the Juve ace will move in a deal worth £105m, which will break the record for the highest transfer fee of all time, previously set by Gareth Bale following his move from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid three years ago.

While the report goes on to add that his agent, Mino Raiola, has been in contact with United chiefs over the last few days, Pogba could now even arrive in Manchester as soon as Tuesday to have his medical.

It’s certainly a potentially swift conclusion to transfer talks, given that the process has been seemingly on-going for weeks with the Juve midfielder linked with an exit from Turin all summer.

A whole host of European clubs have been paired with an interest, including Real Madrid, but it appears as though he will favour a return to Manchester after leaving in 2012.

Pogba quit Old Trafford and moved to Italy on a free transfer at that time and has gone on to develop into one of the top midfielders in Europe with the Bianconeri.

Having won four consecutive Serie A titles and dominated domestically with Juve, he could now be set to join up with Jose Mourinho as he plots United’s route back to the top of European football in the coming years.
