Manchester United fans on social media were thrilled with the solid advancements in the deal for Paul Pogba.
Sky Italia claimed the Frenchman’s agent Mino Raiola will be presenting Man United’s offer of over €100m to Juventus officials on Tuesday afternoon.
Italian football expert Gianluca Di Marzio has also thrown his hat in the ring backing claims that Pogba’s agent will present an offer today.
Here’s what Man United fans had to say on the new Pogba updates:
Pogba is actually happening isn't it!? Fair play United have well and truly got their act together this transfer window.

It isn't difficult for mufc to actually sign two or three players with that 100m. But I think getting Pogba will make a statement.

It’s an incredible update for Man United as the club look to get the deal complete early this summer, the Frenchman could be set to linkup with Mourinho’s new signings Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford.
It’s a staggering amount to pay for one player, but it’s hard to remember Pogba is still only 23, he has plenty of time to develop and Rio Ferdinand has also backed him to become one of the best midfielders in the world.
Juventus can’t be forced into selling their star asset as he is currently contracted with the Italian club until 2018, but it’ll be hard for them to refuse Man United’s world record transfer fee.
