Paul Pogba is set for a record transfer to Manchester United, this time the home coming will be close to €110m from Juventus.
Manchester united has been highly with Juventus playmaker Paul Pogba this summer and foottheball sources claim that the world record move to Old Trafford is on the verge of completion.
It is believed that the transfer saga has finally come to an end and Pogba is expected to complete a medical at Old Trafford on Monday and rejoin the Red Devils he left in 2012.
Earlier, Mourinho confirmed that the club is in the hunt for signing one more player before the summer transfer window closes, but he chose not to disclose who the latest signing will be.
Talking to the media before the testimonial match for Wayne Rooney Foundation, Mourinho said: “We are going to sign one more player, that’s for sure.”
“I don’t want to speak about Paul because he’s a Juventus player. But the reality is that we are going to sign one more player. As you know, the market closes on August 31 so we have plenty of time to do that, but obviously I’d like to do it before the season starts,” he concluded.
Mourinho has made an immediate impact after signing Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this summer. Recent reports claim that he is still on the hunt for a top-notch central midfielder and it is believed that the talented French midfielder Paul Pogba is the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle that Mourinho has been desperately looking for.
Mourinho stated on Friday: “We have 22 and we are going to have 23 (players).”
“We have got a super striker Ibrahimovic and we are going to get a very good midfield player, so I am happy with the balance of my squad, I’m happy with the effort that the club has, and is still putting in for us,” he added.
Pogba joined united in 2009 as a youth prospect form Le Harve but made a move to Juventus on a free transfer due to lack of game time.
