It’s edging closer and closer.
Sky Sports have broke a major update in the transfer saga of the summer.
“We understand that Manchester United’s chief executive Ed Woodward has begun negotiations in the last 48 hours that could see Paul Pogba return to Old Trafford in a world record deal worth £100m.
“Juventus are known to be keen to keep hold of the 23-year old, but would find it hard to resist such a deal, which would see Pogba earn up to £300K a week.
“The player is also being courted by Real Madrid.”
Concrete reports of negotiations surely suggest that this transfer, which looked impossible not long ago, is really on the cards.
These claims follow Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio’s report from Wednesday night.
“Manchester United are ready to make an important offer for Pogba: 120 million euros, which Raiola will present to Juventus at the end of the tournament.
“Juventus consider Pogba very important, we now have to see how they will react to such an offer. Manchester United already have an agreement in principle with the player: 13 million euros per season net of taxes.”
