Manchester United have completed a World Record deal for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba according to reports.
Sources around Europe have confirmed that the deal to take the Frenchman back to Old Trafford has now been completed, with all that is left to be done is announce the deal, which could take place today.
Jose Mourinho confirmed that Manchester United will be making one more signing this summer, but refused to be drawn on speaking about Pogba personally.
We are going to sign one more player, that’s for sure.
I don’t want to speak about Paul Pogba because he is a Juventus player and I don’t like other managers speaking about my players. I don’t speak about their players.
But the reality is we are going to sign one more player. The market closes on August 31, so we have plenty of time to do that, but obviously I would like to do it before the Premier League season starts.
Pogba left Old Trafford in 2012 after failing to get his desired amount of game time under Sir Alex Ferguson, and decided to move on to Juventus where he has developed into one of the most sought after central midfielders in world football.
The deal to take Pogba to Old Trafford is thought to be worth around £95million, with his agent Mino Raiola also cashing in a further £15million.
Meanwhile, Pogba’s number 10 shirt at Juventus seems to have already been reissued to Paulo Dybala, and is already on sale in an adidas store.
