Pogba’s deal now sealed

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Manchester United v Stoke City - Old TraffordPAUL POGBA will seal a world-record move from Juventus to Manchester United.

A top Juventus source said last night: “A deal with United is done.”

SunSport can reveal the overall fee United will pay to land manager Jose Mourinho’s No.1 summer target is £112 million.

The club has agreed to give Juve £92m to buy back the France star, 23, who left Old Trafford for just £800,000 four years ago.

But United will also pay Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola £20m as part of the package, with Juve agreeing to pay a sum of around £4m to the Italian-born Dutch agent.

It will be a massive relief to Mourinho as his old club Real Madrid wanted to hijack the deal.

Bernabeu boss Zinedine Zidane said: “Everyone is interested in Pogba.

“When you’re Madrid, you want the best. Until August 31 anything can happen.”

As SunSport reported yesterday, Raiola held showdown talks in Milan with Juve’s technical director Beppe Marotta.

The Serie A champions were refusing to pay part of Raiola’s commission — but the two clubs found a compromise when Juve agreed to fund “a small part”, according to our source.

The biggest deal in history will eclipse Real’s most expensive signings — Gareth Bale’s £86m switch from Tottenham and Cristiano Ronaldo’s £80m move from United. – The Sun
