Man United submit world-record offer for Paul Pogba – report

Man United are ready to offer €124m (£104m) for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, according to reports in Italy

Manchester United have made a world-record offer for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, according to reports in Italy.

Gazzetta dello Sport – as quoted by The Irish Independent – are claiming that United have put together an offer of €124m (£104m) for the France international.

The Italian media outlet are also reporting that €24m will be comprised of add-ons, making the proposed transfer fee a world record.

Pogba has been heavily linked with a return to Old Trafford in recent months, with Jose Mouriho’s appointment as manager only serving to intensify the transfer speculation.

The French midfielder quit the 20-time English champions in 2012 after the 23-year-old failed to secure a regular starting spot under United legend Sir Alex Ferguson.

Pogba has since developed into one of the world’s leading midfielders after winning four successive Serie A titles, the Coppa Italia twice and finishing as a Champions League runner-up in 2015.

Mourinho has been busy in the summer transfer window after recruiting three new players following his appointment as their new manager in May.
