Jose Mourinho tells friends to expect £80m Man United signing – report

Jose Mourinho is keen to bring Paul Pogba back to Manchester United this summer, say reports

Jose Mourinho is confident of securing the signing of Paul Pogba at Manchester United this summer in a big-money deal, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Portuguese coach has told friends to expect an £80m signing this summer and that Mourinho is keen to bring Pogba back to Old Trafford.

United have been linked with a host of players in recent days but have thus far only signed defender Eric Bailly and veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Pogba left United to join Juventus back in the summer of 2012 after he was deemed to be surplus to requirements at Old Trafford by Sir Alex Ferguson.

The France international has earned plenty of new admirers for his performances since joining Juventus and has been linked with a return to Old Trafford.

Now, the same newspaper report claims that United are ready to break their previous transfer record of £59.7m for Angel Di Maria to bring Pogba to Old Trafford this summer.

Mourinho is still believed to be on the hunt for a number of new players as he prepares for his first season in charge at Old Trafford.
