Telegraph: Manchester United in pole position after £80 million Pogba bid.

According to the report, sources close to Juventus say United have already launched a British record £80m offer for the midfielder.

Jose Mourinho is keen to sign the Frenchman, and hence, the Red Devils are willing to increase their initial offer, and may even break the world transfer record fee for the 23-year-old. It also puts them ahead of Real Madrid in the race, who are only willing to pay £60m for him, and may look to another options, such as Pogba’s fellow countryman N’Golo Kanté.

Paul Pogba is believed to be excited to play under Jose Mourinho, but the lack of Champions League football at Old Trafford next season may stall the deal. However, Mino Raiola – who has already done one deal (Zlatan), and is close to complete another (Mkhitaryan) with the English giants – is determined to strike the deal for his third client too.
