Manchester United are edging closer to securing a deal for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba as they prepare make him the first £100million footballer.
The Frenchman, who is preparing for tonight’s Euro 2016 quarter final fixture against Iceland, left Old Trafford back in 2012 on a free transfer after failing to break into Sir Alex Fergusons first team plans at Manchester United.
He has since gone onto become one of the most sought after players on the planet, with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City all interested in signing the 23-year old.
However, with Juventus demanding a World Record fee for the midfielder, only Manchester United remain in the hunt to sign their former academy star, thanks to their huge commercial revenues.
United’s negotiating power with Pogba is also advanced thanks to having an excellent relationship with the midfielders agent, Mino Raiola, who has helped broker deals for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, both who have arrived at the club in the last 36 hours.
As well as shelling out £100million option bring Pogba back, United will also pay the midfielder £250,000-a-week.
