Pogba has landed in LA, will now have Man United medical: report

by Sam Peoples

Paul Pogba is set to undergo his medical for Manchester United in a Los Angeles centre, according to reports emanating from France.

Journalist Nabil Djellit says Pogba landed just after 1.30pm local time and will now travel to undergo his medical which is the final piece in the puzzle before he completes his move to Man United.

A fee of just over €110m has been agreed between United and Juventus and Mino Raiola’s percentage cut has also been resolved as United will pay that also, taking the total fee to between €120m-130m. Regardless of Raiola’s cut, it’s a world record transfer.

Why would Pogba be having his medical in Los Angeles? Well, United are flying to Sweden tomorrow for our pre-season friendly against Galatasaray. Plus, in the interests of pushing through the deal quickly, an initial medical can be carried out remotely to complete the deal before a more intense one happens back in Manchester at a later date. This has happened previously.

Once Pogba successfully passes that medical – and as he played all the way through to the Euro 2016 final there should be no issues with that – then Juventus can officially release a statement confirming Pogba will join United. It’s at that point we can start to celebrate, until then we will all wait with baited breath.
