Pogba seals United comeback deal, medical expected

Pogba seals United comeback deal, medical expected

United Kingdom

Paul Pogba is on the verge of sealing a world record move in a deal worth over £100m to his former club Manchester United.

The premier league club on Sunday announced on their official website under the hashtag ‘Pogback’ to the effect that Juventus have given the go-ahead for the player to have a medical in the coming hours.

The Frenchman has been the subject of a long running transfer speculation almost becoming a saga as United look to secure his signature and return to Old Trafford.

Pogba has holidayed in the United States over the last four weeks, further fuelling speculation about his future with a series of suggestive social media posts.

Pogba made just seven appearances for United under Sir Alex Ferguson before leaving Man United in 2012 as a free agent.

At Juventus, Pogba made 178 appearances, scoring 34 goals, and helped the club reach the 2015 Champions League final.

He becomes Mourinho’s fourth signing ahead of the clubs’s opening Premier League game against Bournemouth on August 14.

Pogba’s arrival is expected to mark an end to United’s summer transfer business, the club has hinted.

Pogba swiftly responded to the announcement with his own enigmatic message on social media: “When too many people talk nobody understands. Talk very soon.”
