Former Red set for a return?

Paul Pogba’s protracted transfer saga to United could be coming to an end very soon with reports a deal between the Reds and the player has already been sealed. Juventus are thought to be willing to part with their prized asset for a world record transfer fee which United are willing to meet.

The Express notes: The Red Devils have been edging closer to sealing the Juventus midfielder’s return for some time.

Widespread reports suggest a world-record transfer fee of £112m has already been agreed with personal terms between the player and United settled.

Pogba is understood to still be on holiday in New York as he enjoys the final few days of his time off following his Euro 2016 exploits.

Mourinho will want a deal announced sooner rather than later as he takes his side to Wembley for the Community Shield against Leicester City this weekend. So far United’s pre-season hasn’t quite gone according to plan with a tour of China a disaster and Wayne Rooney’s recent testimonial against Everton resulting in a 0-0 draw.

Pogba’s arrival could see United’s Premier League odds slashed as the Reds are currently around 10/3 to life this season’s title but the signing of the world’s most expensive player may see that drop dramatically.
