Manchester United meet an agreement over Paul Pogba transfer – report

by Leo Nieboer

Marca claim there has been an agreement between Juventus and Manchester United over the transfer of Paul Pogba.

It was revealed last week that Man United had launched a world-record £100m bid, staving off Real Madrid in the process, in an attempt to bring back the 23-year-old, who left Old Trafford after a fall out with Sir Alex Ferguson in 2012.

Other reports have also suggested that a deal has been agreed, stating that Pogba’s return to Manchester is a matter of ‘when’ rather ‘if’.

Marca stated that an agreement between United and the player is now closed. Pogba is set to receive a net worth of €13m per season on a five year contract.

The capture of Pogba – surely the most sought after youngster in the game today – is a massive statement of intent by Jose Mourinho and United, who have financially outmuscled Madrid in the process of pursuing the midfielder.

His immense power, superb technical ability and astonishing passing range will empower a midfield that so often lacked in creativity last season. And at just 23-years-old, he will continue to improve. For somebody who already serves as a fundamental asset for both Juventus and France, he truly is a tantalising prospect.
