In what can be the transfer of the season, or in Manchester United’s case the 2nd, the Old Trafford outfit are reportedly closing in on one of their biggest transfers in recent times.
After acquiring the services of Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the next season, Jose Mourinho has been desperate to land French sensation Paul Pogba since the start of the transfer window.
The Juventus midfielder was rejected at Old Trafford in 2011 and was set to leave the club under Sir Alex Ferguson. He joined the Italian outfit where he grew on to become one of the best midfielders in the world of football at the moment.
But with the United outfit going through a lot changes in recent times, Pogba is reportedly high on the wish list this summer at Old Trafford.
And it is now understood that the 23-year old may well be on his way to the Premier League in a record-breaking transfer.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, a French media outlet, the Old Trafford outfit have reportedly agreed personal terms with the player ahead of a move to the club this summer.
It is reported that they are preparing to place a bid of €120 million (£102.5 million) for the Frenchman to land him this transfer window.
In addition to it, he is offered a contract that will earn him £300,000 a week on a five-year contract that will see him get paid thrice his wages currently at Turin.
Pogba is currently busy with the national team in France playing in the semi-finals of the EUROs and it is reported that Mino Raiola, the agent of the player will present the offer to the Italian giants once the European championship comes to an end.
If he completes the deal, Pogba will join Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan along with Jose Mourinho, as the summer recruitments for the club.
This will see the club play a front three of Anthony Martial, Zlatan, and Mkhitaryan with Wayne Rooney and Pogba behind them making it a world-beating outfield combination.
The Italian giants will also be aware of the amount of business they can do with the price being paid for Pogba and though losing a top class player can be hard, losing him at such a price may not be such a bad piece of business.
Do you think Pogba will move to United this summer?
