Manchester United ‘confident’ for Paul Pogba signing

Manchester United are said to be confident over their chances of signing Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.

According the the Manchester Evening News, the Old Trafford hierarchy do not expect there to be an issue in negotiating a transfer fee with Juventus, with a world record bid likely to be submitted this week.

They have also been given confidence that they can complete a deal with the player, whose agent is determined to complete his third deal of the summer with Manchester United, after seeing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan arrive at Old Trafford already this summer.

The Telegraph back this claim up too after they reveal that Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward flew to Monaco to meet with Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, to discuss the deal as well as finalise the salary of Armenian Mkhitaryan.

Pogba is currently preparing for a Euro 2016 Semi-Final against Germany tomorrow night, and a potential Final on Sunday, and United not speak to Pogba personally until his involvement in the tournament is over. Raiola has however given United assurances that he will do his best to pursuade Pogba to return to Old Trafford.

The 23-year old left Manchester United in 2012 on a free transfer after failing to make many appearances under Sir Alex Ferguson.
