Long-term Manchester United target, Paul Pogba, is expected to complete his move from Juventus to Manchester United within the next few days. The Frenchman’s social media activity also confirms that his move is imminent.
Chevrolet FC, Manchester United’s official shirt promoter, have begun following the 23-year-old on Instagram. This indicates that Pogba could complete his move sooner than expected.
That’s not the only social media activity that excites us. Another Manchester United affiliate has started following the French International, this time on Twitter. Steve Bartram, who is Manchester United’s features editor, is now following Paul Pogba.
Pogba’s future has been subject to speculation for over a month, with many fans and pundits believing that the midfield maestro will end up at his former club.
Manchester United already made two bids for the youngster, but Juventus rejected both of them as the Red Devils had expected Juve to take care of Mino Raiola’s agent’s fee, which the Italian club refused.
But, a new deal has been negotiated between the clubs. Manchester United have agreed to a record-breaking transfer price of £112 million of their former midfielder. Juventus will receive £92 million for Pogba, and his agent Mino Raiola will receive a massive £20 million for his role as an agent.
Jose Mourinho has made it clear to the public that he is looking for a fourth and final big-name signing to add to his squad. The Portuguese manager has already added Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimović, and Eric Bailly. Paul Pogba is believed to have the fourth player profile that the Special One is looking for.
Pogba left Manchester United in 2012 after he claimed that he was not given a fair chance in the first team squad. Since his departure, he has thrived in Italy, and has managed to become one of the most wanted players in the market.
