Man United told to pay £125m to sign star attacker this summer – report

Juventus are set to demand more than £120m for Paul Pogba this summer, say reports

Manchester United will have to fork out a world record transfer fee of £125m if they want to re-sign Paul Pogba this summer, according to reports.

Jose Mourinho is believed to be on the lookout for a number of attacking signings as he prepares for his first full season in charge at Old Trafford.

Pogba has long been linked with a transfer back to the Premier League ever since he left United back in the summer of 2012 after being deemed surplus to requirements by Sir Alex Ferguson.

Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest in the France international in recent weeks.

However, Metro is now reporting that Juventus have set their asking price at €160m (£125m) for any club looking to sign Pogba this summer.
