• United confirmed the Frenchman's return in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
  • Juventus confirm £89m fee with add-ons.

Manchester United will pay the €105m (£89m, $116m) world record fee for Paul Pogba over the course of two years, according to a statement released by Juventus.

That figure also appears to include the considerable fee paid to Pogba's agent Mino Raiola, the man who brokered the biggest transfer in football history.

United finally confirmed the return of the France international in the early hours of Tuesday morning (9 August). Four years on from leaving Old Trafford, Pogba returns having signed a five-year contract with the option of a further year.

It is a move that eclipses Gareth Bale's £86m move from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid in 2013, with Juventus confirming the specific figures themselves later that morning.

A statement from the Serie A club read: "Juventus Football Club announce than an agreement has been finalised with Manchester United Football Club for the definitive transfer of the registration rights of the player Paul Labile Pogba for a consideration of €105m to be paid in two financial years. The consideration may increase of €5m on achieving given conditions in the course of the duration of the contract."

The statement also adds: "The economic effect is positive for about €72.6m, a net solidarity subsidy and auxiliary expenses."

Those "auxiliary expenses" are thought to be largely made up by Raiola's fee, following numerous reports suggesting the Italian-born super-agent was set to pocket up to pocket €25m for his role in the deal.

Raiola, having accused journalists of acting like "parrots" throughout the lengthy transfer saga reacted to the move finally be confirmed on Twitter, writing: "THE MAN IS UNITED."

Pogba becomes Jose Mourinho's fourth signing at Old Trafford since taking over in June, joining Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan at the club.
