French Newspaper L’Equipe have reported that Manchester United are in agreement with Paul Pogba and his club, Juventus, over a transfer for the 23-year-old.
The French newspaper posted this breaking news on Wednesday night, confirming that Manchester United have finally sealed the deal on this whole transfer saga. The newspaper reports that Pogba requested to leave his current club in order to return back to Red Devils.
According to L’Equipe, Manchester United have decided to accept Juventus’ demands of €120 million for the French international – after the Italian Champions rejected Manchester United’s first bid of €101 million.
However, there are a few formalities still to be completed before the move becomes official, but L’Equipe claim that it is only a matter of days before the record-breaking transfer is completed.
Paul Pogba left Manchester United four years ago, on a free transfer to Juventus. The Italians are now set to make a €100 million profit from their French player (€20 million is believed to go towards Pogba’s agent – Mino Raiola).
When the deal is officially announced, Paul Pogba will become the most expensive player in history (€120 million) – surpassing Gareth Bale’s current transfer record of €100 million.
