Manchester United closing in on Paul Pogba.

According to L’Equipe, “all parties have agreed” the transfer of Paul Pogba from Juventus to Manchester United.

The future of the 23-year-old has been widely covered and it seems that a transfer is close. The Sun reported that Manchester United delayed submitting their squad numbers until they completed signing the Juventus midfielder.

Depending on where you look the transfer fee varies, but its thought to be in the region of £100 million. The Guardian has reported that United could pay £92 million if they are willing to fully cover Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, fees of £18.4 million.

The Daily Mail reports events before Paul Pogba left United for The Old Lady. Putting it down to a culmination of Mino Raiola demanding a big contract for the player and a feeling of disrespect from Sir Alex Ferguson.

Whatever the reasons for Pogba’s departure, it appears to be a costly one for Manchester United.

    Should this transfer go through, I believe it would be as close to a Keane/Scholes hybrid that MUFC have been looking for since forever.
    His technical ability has always been apparent, which MUFC will have already experienced first hand in their academy, and he would have an easier “settling in” period due to his previous time at the club.
    It doesn’t mask the fact that it seems like an expensive purchase from what looks like an extended loan period for his development.
