Manchester United target, Paul Pogba, is happy to return to his former club, according to reports from Manchester Evening News. The news outlet also claims that Pogba has already sorted out his personal terms with the Red Devils.
Fresh reports have also come in from Sky Italy, stating that the Red Devils submitted a British Transfer Record bid of £85 million for the French International, which has since been rejected by the Italian Champions.
The offer was rejected by Juventus on Tuesday, although the Italians told Manchester United that any offer in excess of £100 million will be accepted. Sky Sports also report that Ed Woodward will place a second offer within the next 24 hours, that will meet Juventus’ requirements.
Paul is scheduled to return to Italy on the 6th of August, but the Red Devils are eager to complete the transfer as quickly as possible. Rumors of a meeting between United and Pogba’s agent (Mino Raiola) were rubbished by Raiola, who called out the claims as “bulls**t.”
But, with Manchester United’s financial power, it is only a matter of time before the French international returns to Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho has already completed the signings of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but the Portuguese manager is determined to complete the signing of a fourth and final big name in this transfer window.
Jose made a statement during his first press conference as United boss, saying that he would like to complete all transfer business before the start of the season. He also mentioned his desire to fill in four positions to bring a balance to the squad.

The Portuguese boss said: “We made a nucleus of four priorities, four positions, priorities. To give a certain balance to the squad, to give a certain push in terms of quality, and the qualities that I need, that I want, as we know especially with the ones with more vision.”
