From Italy: €115m Pogba deal agreed, payment structure only thing needed

by Sam Peoples

Following on from the Italian front pages saying Paul Pogba’s move to Manchester United was hours away from being completed, La Stampa’s Massimiliano Nerozzi has provided a further update.

Nerozzi said a deal had been agreed; €115m in total for Pogba with €100m going to Juventus and €15m to his agent Mino Raiola. That would represent an excellent compromise on United’s side of the bargain given that there were valuations which floated anywhere between €120m and €145m in total for the whole transfer.

For those who can speak Italian, here is Nerozzi’s article from today’s La Stampa:


Nerozzi is widely considered to be one of the most reputable journalists as far as Juventus news goes, so to hear him say such a bold claim is excellent news. He certainly wouldn’t pull it out of thin air.

As the saying goes, there is no smoke without fire; with Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport saying a deal is hours away from being done, plus La Stampa’s Nerozzi saying a deal has been agreed, United look almost certain to seal Pogba’s move soon – hopefully this week.
