Juventus star will cost Man Utd a world-record £120 million

Juventus star Paul Pogba would set Manchester United back £120 million according to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri.

United would have to pay the Italian giants a package totalling £120 million which would include a huge fee to both Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola.

Raiola also played a key role in United signing two of his other key clients Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan over the summer transfer window.

Palmeri told talkSPORT: “According to my information, the whole package – we don’t talk about wages here – to Manchester United would cost 145 million Euros.

“Juventus would get 120m, but it was leaked today a clause between Juventus and Pogba says that 20% of the selling fee would go to Pogba. Plus 25million Euros that is the personal commission for agent Mino Raiola, because if you are an agent you want that personal commission.”

Palmeri did however, reveal that despite United being prepared to break the transfer fee record, Juventus may decide to keep hold of their star man.

The Italian giants have yet to be convinced into selling Pogba and the club president reportedly wants to keep hold of the France international to help Juve’s chances of lifting the Champions League title.

“There is not a yes or no at this moment – it is all about convincing Juventus,” he added.

“Juventus still haven’t been convinced.

“The president’s real obsession is bringing back the Champions League. He is completely obsessed and thinking ‘maybe one year more and we can do it’. He has to be convinced, although he won’t get a better price than that.

“This offer will be brought to Juve – not by [Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman] Ed Woodward or a delegate – but his agent Raiola. When a club is finding a deal with an agent like this, it’s always a good thing.”

Pogba has established himself as one of the most promising midfielders in European football over the past few seasons and is no stranger to Premier League football having first made a name for himself at United.

The young midfielder left United in 2012 on a free transfer under the stewardship of Sir Alex Ferguson but recently appointed head coach Jose Mourinho is keen on bringing him back.

The French international midfielder helped the Bianconeri to their fifth consecutive Serie A title last season.
