Paul Pogba's agent has said that the Juventus star's much discussed move to Manchester United will be completed next week. The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a return to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.
The France international left Old Trafford as a free agent and joined the Turin club in 2012. Since making a switch to the Serie A, he has developed into one of the best midfielders in Europe.
Pogba's form has seen him attract interest from Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho, who is keen on landing him. The Independent reports the midfielder's return to the Premier League is edging closer and his agent Mino Raiola admitted that it should be sealed soon.
"The deal could be closed within the next week," Raiola told the Italian newspaper La Stampa, as quoted by Sky Sports.
Raiola has already helped the 20-time English champions sign two of his clients, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who were their second and third signings after the arrival of Eric Bailly. The former Barcelona and Juventus striker dropped a hint that Pogba could join his new club this summer.
"We have something big going on. It looks very interesting. Let's see if Pogba will also [come], then it will be even more interesting," Ibrahimovic explained, as quoted by Goal.com.
Meanwhile, Ibrahimovic just took less than four minutes to score his first goal for Mourinho's side. The 34-year-old joined the Red Devils as a free agent in the summer and featured for the first in a United shirt against Galatasaray in Gothenburg.
Ibrahimovic opened the scoring as United came from behind to beat the Turkish giants 5-2 in Sweden. The Premier League outfit dominated the second half, scoring four goals and the striker expressed his delight after netting his first goal for the Old Trafford club.
"It felt good. Very good. The first half was so-so but the second was good. It was my first game and right now it's important to build up my physique and stamina. [Scoring on Swedish soil] felt even better. It was fantastic. We had great support and this is my country. I can't fail in my country," the striker explained
