Juventus have accepted Manchester United’s €120million for Paul Pogba according to reports in France.
L’equipe claim that the Serie A champions rejected Manchester United’s opening offer of €101million (£85million) but accepted their follow up offer of €120million (£101million) which should the deal be completed, will set a smash the record that was set in 2013 when Gareth Bale moved to Real Madrid.
It is also believed that Pogba and Raiola themselves have helped in the deal by sacrificing paet of the bonus that they were due from Juventus upon the sale of the Feenchman. It is thought that the pair were due 20% of the fee received by Juventus, but have agreed to accept 10% to force the deal through.
Pogba has already agreed terms with Manchester United, the club he left for free back in 2012. He will sign a five-year contract worth around €13million-a-year.
In the four years since his departure, Pogba has developed into one of the worlds finest midfielders, scoring 34 goals in 178 games for Juventus.
