Man United now clear to make Mourinho’s fourth signing – report
Real Madrid have pulled out of the race to sign Paul Pogba this summer, according to reports
Manchester United have been given the green light to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus after Real Madrid pulled out of the race for his signature, according to reports in the British media.
Sky Sports News HQ is now reporting that Real Madrid have ended their interest in signing the France international due to financial reasons.
The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move to bring Pogba back to to United as Jose Mourinho searches for his fourth signing as Manchester United manager.
New manager Mourinho has already moved quickly to bolster his squad at Old Trafford, bringing in defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Now, if the latest report from Sky Sports News HQ is to be believed, the Red Devils are clear to make Pogba their next signing of the summer.
The same story claims that the basic transfer fee for Pogba is understood to start at around £85m.
The report goes on to say that Real Madrid chiefs have concluded that they will not be able to compete with United financially in the race to sign Pogba.
The midfielder left United to join Juventus in the summer of 2012 while Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge.
