Report: Manchester United complete fourth summer signing

Paul Pogba

”Go to the Winchester, have a pint and wait for this all to blow over” – If we replace Winchester with Manchester and link it with the Paul Pogba saga, this famous Simon Pegg quote will immaculately depict the psyche of Manchester United fans.

Now the wait seems to over, as according to the Daily record, Pogba has signed for United in a mind-boggling  £110 million deal.

United and Juventus sources have reportedly told the Daily Record that the terms of this transfer were agreed back on Wednesday. The Serie A club’s asking price was £108.9 million for the France international, including a £83.8m payment to the Turin club and a further £25.1 million add-on to cover a 30 per cent sell-on clause owed to Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola.

The 23-year-old left Old Trafford as a free agent in 2012, despite the Red Devils’ attempts to keep him at the club. The Frenchman has established himself into one of the world class players, having impressed for both club and country. 

United manager Jose Mourinho has already admitted that his side are closing in on completing fourth summer signing and the Portuguese coach revealed that he wants it to be done before the start of the 2016-17 Premier League season. 

The Manchester Evening News have said  United could complete Pogba transfer over weekend though. According to Independent, Paul Pogba deal to be announced  by the Red Devils ‘once midfielder returns from holiday’.

  • It all sounds a bit previous. Pogba has signed but he’s still a Juventus player, until he isn’t. He’s in Manchester having a medical, although he must still report for training tomorrow in Turin. The deal is complete even though he is quoted as saying he’s staying with Juventus. He’s definitely signing for Utd, even though he has been photographed wearing all white, had his hair dyed white and hung around in New York at the same time as Real Madrid. Despite all the conviction of the media, I’ll only believe it when Pogba is sat next to Mourinho with the obligatory Utd scarf wrapped around him, at the press conference. Until that time I still think, even at this late stage, that both Pogba and Raiola are angling for Real,and when Utd’s new midfielder is unveiled it won’t be Pogba, but somebody unexpected.
