Juventus have given French midfielder Paul Pogba permission to undergo a medical with Manchester United.
The long drawn out transfer saga of the summer is close to an end with Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward sealing a deal with Juventus in principle that will break the transfer world record – according to Sky Sports.
Juventus, who splashed out a Serie A transfer record of £75.3million on Gonzalo Higuain in July, have allowed 23-year-old Pogba to return to Old Trafford after four supremely successful seasons in Turin.
The fee is expected to rise over the £100m mark, with the France international set to undergo his medical before completing the return to his former club – as announced on Manchester United’s official website.
A move to Serie A side Juventus followed the expiration of his United contract, a tribunal deciding that the Italian club must pay just £800,000 compensation to Manchester United for snapping up the youngster.
