Paul Pogba Reportedly Agrees to Join Manchester United



Paul Pogba has agreed to join Manchester United, according to reports.

Spanish daily Marca say that the Juventus midfielder has given the thumbs up to the Red Devils’ proposal.

He will earn £10.8m-a-year on a five-season deal, according to the paper.

Real Madrid had shown an interest in the 23-year-old but United look to have won the race.

Pogba has apparently told his team of advisors – including agent Mino Raiola – that he wants to join United with Madrid as the only other team he would consider joining.

Raiola was widely expected to be set for a bumper payment for his role in making the deal happen but Marca say that would be because he owns 20% of the player’s rights, rather than a fee.

That means he will bank around £20m from the £100m transfer fee leaving Juventus with the other £80m.

The transfer will make the Frenchman the world’s most-expensive player after he left Old Trafford for just £800,000 in compensation four years ago.

His £100m deal eclipses Gareth Bale’s £86m move from Tottenham to Real Madrid in 2013.
