Manchester United have finalised a world record transfer deal to bring Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford, according to Record Sport Online’s Duncan Castles.
Multiple sources have reported that a deal between Juventus and Man United had been reached on Wednesday night and an announcement would soon follow confirming his departure from the Italian club this summer.
Juventus have allegedly been asking £108.9million for the Frenchman’s services, resulting in a £83.8m payment to the Serie A club and a £25.1m to cover a 30 per cent sell-on clause owed to Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola.
Jose Mourinho has been vocal of his interest in Pogba and described as one of his four fundamental signings following the deals of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
He has been continuously pursued by Europe’s elite clubs over the past two seasons and will be leaving the club where he won four Scudetti in four seasons.
It’s a staggering amount of money to spend on one player, but he’s one of the best midfielders in the world at 23 and will only improve with experience as he makes his move to Old Trafford.
It’s an exciting time for Man United supporters as Mourinho looks to build a world-class squad capable of winning the Premier League title and helping the club back into the Champions League this season.
