Man United Land Paul Pogba in World Record €110m Transfer Fee
Manchester United have agreed on a deal with Juventus to sign Paul Pogba for a world record €110 million, Goal reports.
United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward agreed the deal on Wednesday with Juve directors Giuseppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici, as well as the player’s agent Mino Raiola.
The Red Devils will now pay a fee of €110m for the France midfielder, which eclipses the previous record set when Real Madrid coughed out €100m for Gareth Bale in 2013.
The 23-year-old has been brought in on a five-year deal with Jose Mourinho’s men and will be on a £210,000-a-week net salary, which almost triples his current wages at Juve.
Pogba who starred for Les Blues at Euro 2016, had also been linked with the likes of Real, but they were priced out of the move and he was happy to leave Juventus despite United not playing in the Champions League next season.
Asked about United earlier this month during an interview with ESPN in Spanish, Pogba replied: “It was my first family.”
He originally left United for Juventus four years ago due to a lack of first-team opportunities under former boss Sir Alex Ferguson, and his return to the club will cap a busy start in the transfer market for Mourinho.
United have already added Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to their squad as they look to settle down quickly into the new season.
