Paul Pogba is set to be officially confirmed as a Manchester United player again after his world record £100million move was finally sealed on Thursday night, Dailymail reports.
After weeks of negotiations, United have agreed a huge fee for the Juventus star to complete Jose Mourinho’s summer spending spree.
United are eager to parade their new signing who completed a medical in Los Angeles and will wear the No 6 shirt and are set to officially announce his arrival.
The deal for the 23-year-old France midfielder is done after Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola held further talks with Juventus officials and lawyers in Turin on Thursday afternoon.
United and Juventus have agreed to pay a fee to Raiola with part of his 20 per cent bonus being accounted for in Pogba’s overall deal.
It is understood, however, that Juventus will announce the fee at £84.3m on account of the tax they are due to pay on the transfer. The current world record transfer fee is the £86m paid by Real Madrid to Tottenham for Gareth Bale in 2013.
Pogba left Old Trafford in July 2012 after the then United manager Sir Alex Ferguson refused to agree to Raiola’s demands for an improved contract. Juventus paid them just £800,000 in compensation.
