Great news for Manchester United supporters as Paul Pogba transfer to Old Trafford is officially underway. The Juventus midfielder’s agent Mino Raiola has arrived in Manchester to have a meeting with the Red Devils hierarchy regarding a transfer bid.
Manchester United will reportedly offer Juventus a world record transfer amount of $138 million. The Red Devils will give Pogba an individual five-year contract of $13.27 million per year, as reported by Calciomercato.com.
It is believed that both the clubs will agree on the transfer and Juventus will receive $110.6 million on the deal as 20% of the amount will go to Pogba and his agent. This is also one of the major reasons involved why Raiola wants the deal to happen as quickly as possible.
Raiola is currently in Manchester to talk with the United management to formulate an official transfer bid which the club will submit to the Old Lady. This will make Pogba the most expensive player in the history of football, surpassing Gareth Bale’s transfer to Real Madrid.
The 23-year-old Frenchman signed for Juventus, four years ago on a free transfer. He has since featured in 178 games for the club, scoring 34 goals in the process. Pogba is considered as one of the best midfielders of the modern generation, and with many years left under his belt, this will be an amazing transfer for Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho did mention previously that he will sign players in four key areas this summer. With Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan already completing the other three positions, Pogba will complete this summer’s signings for the Portuguese, unless any important player leaves the club.
