Paul Pogba is set to be officially confirmed as a Manchester United player again after his world record £100million move was finally sealed today.
After weeks of negotiations, United have agreed a huge fee for the Paul Pogba to complete Jose Mourinho‘s summer spending spree. United are eager to parade their new signing – who completed a medical in Los Angeles – and are set to officially announce his arrival.
It means the player who left Old Trafford for next to nothing in 2012 will return as the stellar signing of the summer – in a world record transfer which smashes the British mark by an incredible £40m.
The deal for the 23-year-old France midfielder is expected to be formalised on Friday after Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola held further talks with Juventus officials and lawyers in Turin on Thursday afternoon. United and Juventus have agreed to pay a fee to Raiola with part of his 20 per cent bonus being accounted for in Pogba’s overall deal.
It is understood, however, that Juventus will announce the fee at £84.3m on account of the tax they are due to pay on the transfer. The current world record transfer fee is the £86m paid by Real Madrid to Tottenham for Gareth Bale in 2013.
