Paul Pogba is reportedly set to travel to Manchester on Saturday to complete a medical ahead of his world-record transfer to Manchester United, according to Sky Sports.
The France international has been at the center of the transfer saga of the summer, but the deal could finally be concluded soon, and he could be announced as a United player by Monday, according to some of Sky Sports’ sources.
United kick off their season with a match against Leicester in the Community Shield on Sunday, the 7th of August, before their Premier League campaign begins with an away game at Bournemouth a week later. Pogba is likely to be announced before then, should the deal go through, and Mourinho will hope he settles in quickly.
The total amount spent on transfers by Premier League clubs this summer is at an unbelievable £544,480,000, and that amount is set to increase by a further £100 million should Pogba’s record breaking move go through.
The Frenchman was recently asked by the hosts of a YouTube channel whether he would be staying with Juventus for the upcoming season, to which he replied “Yeah”. The 23-year-old’s reply wasn’t very convincing, but it does give rise to the possibility that Pogba may not even be moving this summer.
Should that prove to be true, it will no doubt infuriate United’s fans, who have been eagerly awaiting the return of their former prodigy.
