Manchester United have now SEALED a world-record £100million deal to sign Paul Pogba.
They have agreed to pay Juventus the massive fee for their France superstar and will hand Pogba a five-year contract worth £210,000-a-week, net.
The Old Trafford giants’ executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward agreed the deal with Juve directors Giuseppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici, as well as the player’s agent Mino Raiola.
As we revealed earlier this month, the price was set by Italian champions Juventus several weeks ago and the prospect of smashing the world record had not deterred United from their bid to take the player.
Woodward has missed the first leg of his club’s pre-season tour in China in order to conduct negotiations.
Jose Mourinho, the new United boss, has been keen to ensure Pogba returns to pre-season training – after helping France reach the final of Euro 2016 – with his Reds and not Juve.
