Juventus’ Paul Pogba set to undergo Manchester United medical

Manchester, England – As previously announced, Juventus and Manchester United have come to an agreement for the transfer of French international Paul Pogba for a fee of over 120 million euros.

United had already agreed to pay Juventus‘ 120 million euros asking price for Pogba but had been in negotiations over extra fees.

After extended negotiations, United will pay a 112.6 million euros transfer fee for the 23-year-old plus 23.7 million euros in agents’ fees.

United are eager to parade their new signing – who completed a medical in Los Angeles and will wear the No 6 shirt – and are set to officially announce his arrival. 

He becomes United’s fourth signing since Jose Mourinho was appointed as manager, following defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The previous transfer record paid by a British club was the 70.7 million euros United forked out for Argentina winger Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid in August 2014.
