Manchester United fans were delighted with the news that Paul Pogba is close to completing his deal to Old Trafford this summer.
The club released an official statement on Sunday afternoon stating Pogba has been granted permission to have a medical in order to finalise his transfer from Juventus to Man United.
The Frenchman has been continuously linked with a move to Man United, but speculation has finally come to an end as he will soon complete his world record transfer.
Here’s what supporters had to say.

Forget the fee, Pogba turns #MUFC into title contenders. Amazing a club outside top four can sign a player of that quality

Best thing about this is never having to hear the words 'Letting Pogba go was the biggest mistake Utd have ever made' again.

Pogba will help take the club to the next level and I can’t wait to see him linkup with the rest of Mourinho’s signings at Old Trafford this season.
It’s an incredible signing for Man United and it underlines Mourinho’s ambition to build a world-class squad capable of winning silverware.
Real Madrid were also interested in his services but it shows the determination in the Portuguese boss to get the deal done even without being able to offer Champions League football this year.
