Rumors about Paul Pogba have reached an all-time high – with Italian Newspaper, La Gazzetta dello Sport, reporting that United have finally tabled their record-breaking offer.
The Italian Newspaper also reports that Juventus will complete their €90 million move for Gonzalo Higuaín after they receive money from the sale of Paul Pogba.
Carlo Laudisa, a journalist who works for La Gazzetta dello Sport, posted a tweet to provide an update on the whole situation. He tweeted that Pogba is very close to completing the United switch – with the Red Devils offering €100m + €24m (in bonus) for the French International.
The initial transfer fee would be €100 million (which would put him alongside Gareth Bale in the World’s most expensive transfers) and €24 million in bonuses, depending on how Pogba will perform at the club.
Manchester United have been linked with the French International throughout the summer transfer window, as Jose Mourinho is determined to make Pogba his fourth and final major signing of this window.
Pogba spoke about Manchester United during a publicity event, where he explained that he has no regrets about leaving the Red Devils. The French International also stated that he is happy at Juventus, although he revealed that he learnt a lot in England.
“I think of Man United every day. I started there, training every day with big players. For me I am happy, I learn a lot. I thank Man United,” said Pogba.
“Ferguson is the greatest manager in the world, and I will say it today and I have said it before, he is a great manager. But maybe we didn’t get on with one thing, but he’s the greatest manager – and I’ve learnt a lot with him.”
The 23-year-old’s statement reveals that he has no hard feelings for the club that never gave him a fair chance to prove himself – thereby clearing all the doubts about a possible transfer.
