HITC Sport reports that Pogba has already announced his arrival to his former Old Trafford teammates.
Manchester United have reportedly accepted Juventus’ €120 million asking price for Paul Pogba, which is set to make Pogba the most expensive player in history, smashing Gareth’s Bale record of £85 million.
The switch will see Paul Pogba return to Manchester four years after the French international left the club on a free transfer – reason being that Sir Alex didn’t give the youngster a fair chance in the first team squad.
Paul Pogba also generated interest from Real Madrid, although the Galacticos backed out of the race for his signature after they were told the Frenchman would cost in excess of €100 million. It is believed that Pogba initially preferred a transfer to the Bernabeu, but is now set on returning to Manchester United.
As per the report, Pogba has told three of his former Manchester United teammates about his return to Old Trafford, and also that he is happy to wear the red shirt again.
According to the report published by HITC Sport, Pogba will be earning close to £300,000 a week – the same wage as that of Manchester United’s captain, Wayne Rooney.
Juventus were also believed to be preparing a new contract for the midfielder, although their wage proposals come nowhere near to what Manchester United have tabled.
HITC Sport published a statement from one of their sources, who they claim has details about the Pogba deal:
“United are flexing their muscles, some people scoff when they refer to themselves as the biggest club in the world, well this deal – when done – will show that they are very much back at the top table of world football.”
Manchester United have already completed the signings of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimović, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and look to Pogba as their fourth and final big name signing.
