Paul Pogba set to complete £100 million transfer to Manchester United
Pogba now 1/7 to sign for Manchester United after further talks take place
July 28th, 2016
It’s looking increasingly likely that Paul Pogba will line up for Manchester United next month, with the Frenchman set to return to Old Trafford five years after Sir Alex Ferguson allowed him to leave for Juventus.
Pogba is expected to cost United £100 million, with the midfielder recognised to be one of the best players in the world and he helped France to reach the Euro 2016 final this summer.
There had clearly been interest from Real Madrid although bookmaker Sky Bet go 1/7 that Pogba instead signs for the Red Devils, with Jose Mourinho keen to have a side that features the Frenchman and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Guardian reports that United are preparing contracts to land the signature of Pogba, with Juve set to formally accept an offer of £93 million although there will also be add-ons based on appearances and other factors.
Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have already been snapped up by the Red Devils this summer, although Pogba’s arrival is set to eclipse all of those and United fans will be salivating at the prospect of the Frenchman turning out for their side.
