Paul Pogba

Manchester United are on the verge of signing Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba in a world record transfer as the deal looks close to completion.

Juventus have reportedly given permission for Pogba to have a medical ahead of transfer as the player have finished his Euro holidays in the USA and the deal is set to be struck in the next few hours.

Manchester United released a statement that reads: “Paul Pogba has been granted permission to have a medical in order to finalise his transfer from Juventus to Manchester United.”

Earlier Juventus manager has put the lid on transfer rumours as he said there was “no point” in talking about a replacement for the 23-year old and also added Pogba would be back in training with the club on Monday.

However, the negotiations over the deal was finally completed and the midfielder would be joining Manchester United in a dream move. The Red Devils are set to pay over £100m for a player whom they left the club for free four years ago.

Jose Mourinho has earlier said that he is set to sign “very good midfielder” before the Premier League begins and the deal which was originally planned to be made official last Thursday is set to be announced in the next few hours.
