Manchester United have reportedly completed a deal to bring Juventus star Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford. He will become the club's fourth signing of the summer.
According to the Daily Record, the 20-time English champions and Juventus agreed a fee on Wednesday (3 August) for Pogba to return to the Premier League. The 23-year-old's agent Mino Raiola holds a 30% sell-on clause, meaning a portion of the fee that will be received by the Old Lady will go to the player's representative.
Pogba left United as a free agent in the summer of 2012 and joined the Turin club, where he has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the world.
The Serie A outfit were asking for a fee of £108.9m ($143.03m) and Jose Mourinho's side are willing smash the world-record fee in landing the talented midfielder. Out of that fee, Raiola will bag £25.1m ($33m) in helping his third client join the Premier League giants.
United have already completed three signings — Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The last two are represented by Raiola and Pogba is also managed by the same agent.
Several clubs across Europe were interested in signing Pogba this summer. Among them were Real Madrid, according to Sky Sports. However, the Champions League winners have withdrawn from the race, giving United a clear path to complete the deal.
Pogba is asking for an annual wage of £10m ($13.1m) after tax and United are ready to meet the player's demands.
