Paul Pogba will sign for Manchester United on Friday and is set to become the most expensive player in history, according to reports.
Sources have told calciomercato.com that the France midfield general is going to complete his transfer to the Old Trafford club in the next 24 hours after his agent Mino Raiola renounced part of the 20% revenue from Pogba’s sale.
Jose Mourinho has been tracking the Juve star all summer and it finally looks as though he has got his man for a world-record transfer fee of €115million, including all bonuses and add-ons.
It will make the 23-year-old the most expensive player in the history of football, returning to the club four years after leaving the Old Trafford as a free agent after failing to agree a new deal with former United chief Sir Alex Ferguson.
Juventus had already turned down two offers of Manchester United with the highest believed to be €110 million, plus a €10million bonus. The Serie A giants, who have already bought Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli for £75million, declined that offer because Raiola would have got the 20% of the transfer fee.
Now though United have also agreed a deal with Raiola, which means that Pogba, who has already agreed personal terms, is going to complete a switch to United in the next few hours.
Pogba will undergo medical in the USA, where he’s currently spending his holidays after losing to Portugal in the final of Euro 2016.
Pogba, who posted an image in United’s red, white and black colours filling up his car on Route 66, scored 34 goals and registered 43 assists in 178 games with the Bianconeri during his four-year spell in Turin.
