Manchester United are all set to sign Pogba in a world-record transfer of a staggering total £112million. United are paying Juventus £89m for the Juventus midfielder, with another £23m reportedly going to super-agent Mino Raiola.
Four years after he left Old Trafford for nothing following a contract dispute between his agent Mino Raiola and United manager Alex Ferguson, the French boy wonder has returned to his spiritual home for a mind blowing fee that has been the talk of football all summer.
How can United justify paying Juventus a massive £100m for a single player, shattering the world transfer record and making a huge statement of intent as new boss Jose Mourinho sets out on his mission to put the club back at the top.
With the deal now complete, the debate over the merits of the transfer is well underway but Pogba’s move to Manchester United has given a glimpse into the future of how football transfers are conducted on a variety of level.
