Advantage Manchester United in Paul Pogba chase

Manchester United have taken the the lead in the race to sign Paul Pogba according reports in Spain, as Real Madrid stall on a deal for the Frenchman.

The 23-year old left Old Trafford back in 2012 after failing to secure a regular first team slot in Sir Alex Fergusons starting XI, and subsequently moved to Juventus on a free transfer. Since then, Pogba has gone on to develop into one of the finest young midfielders of his generation, attracting attention from clubs all across Europe.

Jose Mourinho was interested in taking the midfielder to Stamford Bridge last summer, and has rekindled that interest following his arrival at Manchester United.

Reports in AS claim that Manchester United are willing to pay the staggering €120million asking price for Pogba, as well as the commission wanted by his agent Mino Raiola, who also represents Manchester United targets Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Pogba is also one of Real Madrids main targets, but the European Champions have stalled on a deal as they are concerned what Pogbas huge salary would do for the rest of the squad, namely Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale. They are also reluctant to pay Raiolas huge agent fees.
