Manchester United and Juventus have finally reached an agreement over the transfer of Paul Pogba, with the France midfielder set to have a medical before completing a €110m move back to Old Trafford.
The 23-year-old will sign a five-year contract with the club he left in 2012 on a free transfer. The overall fee is likely to reach €120m with add-ons factored in and United have also agreed to pay the substantial cut commanded to Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, who acted as an intermediary between the clubs during negotiations.
The Juve manager, Massimiliano Allegri, had said on Saturday he summoned Pogba to train with the club on Monday but there was a breakthrough in discussions since.
Pogba has won four Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia twice in Turin but was on the losing end in the 2015 Champions League final and also failed to leave an impact for France in last month’s Euro 2016 final defeat to Portugal. He would be eligible to start in United’s Premier League opener against Bournemouth next Sunday, though that would appear unlikely on account of him having a prolonged summer break following the Euros.
