Paul Pogba

More twist and turns! Earlier today almost every corner of the world media declared that Manchester United have finally signed Juventus’ Paul Pogba, but now the Frenchman’s agent Mino Raiola himself cleared out every single doubt – United haven’t sealed the deal yet.

Daily Mirror claimed Manchester United have already sealed the world-record £100million deal to sign Paul Pogba.

They have reportedly agreed to pay Juventus the massive fee for their France superstar and will hand Pogba a five-year contract worth £210,000-a-week, net.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, it’s believed, agreed the deal with Juve directors Giuseppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici, as well as the player’s agent Mino Raiola.

But, it now seems Juventus director Beppe Marotta was telling the truth. He earlier on Thursday denied that Paul Pogba to Manchester United now almost done deal and it certainly came as a major twist in the Pogba saga.

over the past few days, reports in France claimed that a deal was in place for the French international to return to Old Trafford, while several other reports claimed successful talks had taken place on Wednesday.

But Marotta would not accept that any progress had been made and denied any contact with Man United at all.

“There is no contact with Manchester United for Pogba,” he told Sportitalia.

“The situation is no different to when I spoke to you on Friday.”

There is such a wave of transfer rumours surrounding the 23-year-old that it’s hard to believe that no progress has been made.

But it may be the case that Juventus are still unhappy with the terms of the deal and are refusing to let him leave without a fight.

Meanwhile, Pogba’s agent Raiola is reportedly set to pick up around 20 per cent of the overall transfer fee which would see him take away nearly £20m.

Juventus had rejected United’s original £87m offer but accepted an increased bid worth £92m late on Wednesday night on the condition that the Premier League side pay the entirety of Raiola’s agent fee.
