Paul Pogba provides Man United transfer update
Paul Pogba describes Manchester United as his 'first family'
Paul Pogba has described Manchester United as his “first family” as the Juventus midfielder was quizzed over his future plans.
The France international is currently on his summer holidays following les Bleus’s disappointment of losing 1-0 to Portugal in the European championship final last weekend.
According to Spanish media outlet Marca, United have already agreed terms with the Serie A winner over a proposed five-year deal worth £200,000-a-week.
Pogba has won four Italian top-flight titles and the Coppa Italia twice since the midfielder moved to Turin from the Red Devils in 2012 after failing to secure regular first-team football under Sir Alex Ferguson.
And the French midfielder still appears to have a soft spot for United despite turning his back on the 20-time English champions.
Asked what the 20-time English champions meant to him, Pogba replied in Spanish to ESPN – as quoted by The Guardian: “It was my first family.”
Pressed on a possible return to Manchester, he smiled and replied: “I don’t know. We’ll see, we’ll see.”
The Red Devils have already signed three players in the summer transfer window as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his United squad ahead of the new season.
The Portuguese coach has signed Villarreal defender Eric Bailly, Swedish legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Borussia Dortmund man Henrikh Mkhitaryan thus far.
