Paul Pogba has been granted permission to undergo his medical at Manchester United by Juventus, according to Gianluca di Marzio.
With contracts signed by Juventus, Man United, Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola, everything is now in place from a legal perspective which means only a pending medical stands in the way of the French midfielder completing his move to United.
Fabrizio Romano backed up the story by offering more clarity on the situation:
It really does feel like we’re getting towards a crescendo which has been weeks in the making but nevertheless will be one of the most exciting moments in United’s transfer history – Pogba is coming home. If everything goes smoothly from here on in then I’d expect Pogba to be announced on Monday or Tuesday.
Pogba will become Jose Mourinho’s fourth summer signing and mean he has a squad which is more than capable of competing for titles on all fronts. After three years of struggle post-Fergie, United are set to be back with a bang this season.
