Man United to announce fourth signing after concluding deal – report
Manchester United have finally concluded a deal to bring Paul Pogba back to the club, according to reports
Manchester United are poised to announce the signing of Paul Pogba from Juventus before the start of the Premier League season, according to reports in the British media.
The Manchester Evening News is reporting that the Red Devils concluded a deal to bring Pogba back to Old Trafford while he holidayed in the United States and will now announce his capture before their Premier League opening game against Bournemouth on 14 August.
The same story claims that Pogba made up his mind to re-join Manchester United around a fortnight ago during his summer holiday.
It also states that the Red Devils have already agreed personal terms with Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola, and that the deal will be worth a total of around £100m.
The Pogba transfer saga has been rumbling on all summer since Jose Mourinho’s appointment as the club’s new manager back in May.
The Red Devils have been relentlessly linked with a bid to bring the France midfielder back to Old Trafford after he left the club for next to nothing to join Juventus exactly four years ago under Sir Alex Ferguson.
There has been no official comment from either club but Mourinho on Wednesday night declared United’s intention to sign one more player this summer.
However, the new man in charge at Old Trafford stopped short of confirming that man would be the 23-year-old Pogba as he directly addressed the speculation linking United with a move for the midfielder.
United are currently gearing up for their Community Shield clash against Premier League champions Leicester City at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.
The game will be Mourinho’s first competitive match in charge of Manchester United since his appointment as the club’s new manager back in May in the wake of Louis van Gaal’s sacking.
