Manchester United’s pursuit of Paul Pogba has accelerated rapidly in the last 48 hours.
Our first official bid has now gone in worth €101m, Juventus have rejected it, they are likely to come back with a counter-offer of €120m plus bonuses. To top it all off, the Italian press are reporting in unison that Pogba is pushing for a move to Old Trafford.
That final point is the momentum shift in this saga. With Pogba pushing for a move, all United have to agree on is a fee to bring back Paul to United. None of us thought it could happen but it’s now very close to being pushed over the finish line.
