Manchester United have finalised their world-record transfer for Paul Pogba, as the £100million-plus star finishes his holiday in New York.
Paul Pogba is essentially a Manchester United player again four years after he left the club in acrimonious circurmstances to join Juventus.
Reports suggest United have completed their deal for Pogba which is going to break the world transfer record and make him the first £100m footballer in history.
According to the Daily Record, sources close to the deal say the move was finally agreed on Wednesday with United paying a fee of £108.9m.
Juventus will receive £83.8m of that payment with an astonishing £25.1m going to the 23-year-old’s agent Mino Raiola to cover a 30 per cent sell-on clause he is owed.
Raiola negotiated Pogba’s move from United to Juventus in 2012, which sparked a backlash from then manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
Express Sport understands Pogba would sign a long-term contract at Old Trafford worth around £275,000 a week.
Pogba is due back for training with Juventus on Sunday, but could fly straight to Manchester from New York to start his second spell at United.
He is unlikely to play in United’s Community Shield showpiece against Leicester at Wembley on Sunday.
United boss Jose Mourinho hinted earlier this week he wants to tie up the Pogba deal before his side’s Premier League opener at Bournemouth on Sunday August 14.
