Manchester United have agreed terms with Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola and will make a €120m bid next week, reports Guillem Balague via Spanish outlet as.
Pogba had liked the idea of moving to Real Madrid, according to Balague, but has since distanced himself from the European Champions in the last few days leaving Manchester United as the frontrunners for his signature.
Along with Real Madrid, Chelsea are also interested in signing the Juventus midfielder, but Manchester United have now reached an agreement with Pogba and his agent Raiola making a move to anywhere but Old Trafford complicated.
Manchester United will now have to pay €120m to secure the services of their former player.
Should Pogba’s move to Manchester United materialise, the 23-year-old will earn €13.5m a year, according to as.
Agent Raiola will also receive a €25m fee if Pogba joins United this summer.
Raiola has already helped Manchester United sign two of his other clients Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Italian will now be looking for his hat-trick as he continues to help Jose Mourinho rebuild Manchester United with Pogba seemingly the last piece of the Special One’s new puzzle.
Mourinho has said since joining the 20-time English champions that he wants to strengthen the squad in four key positions.
Eric Bailly, Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan have strengthened the Red Devils in defence and attack respectively and now Mourinho will be hoping he can fully reinforce his midfield by signing Pogba from Juventus in a world record deal.
