LONDON: Paul Pogba has reportedly flown to Manchester to undergo a medical ahead of a transfer to United which could be confimed as early as tomorrow.
Reports in Italy have claimed that the saga over the 23-year-old midfielder’s departure from champions Juventus is close to being concluded for a world record fee.
Pogba, who left United four years ago on a free transfer, would cost United €110m (£93m) with performance related add-ons and agent fees taking the total fee to €130m (£110m).
On Friday manager Jose Mourinho hinted that the deal could be completed soon.
Asked if there is one more big signing on the way to Old Trafford, he replied: ‘Yes. We have 22 now and we are going to have 23. Paul Pogba is a Juventus player until officially he isn’t.
‘We stay like this but, honestly, the market closes on August 31 but I think my club is trying to do everything to close our market before August 14. Normally next week we will have our squad closed.’
