Paul Pogba to Manchester United has taken another turn today; in the Old Trafford direction.
Pogba has reportedly told Juventus that he wants to be transferred away from the Italian club. However, the news comes on the same day Manchester United’s first official bid for Pogba’s services was rejected by Juventus.
Despite the earlier speculation around Pogba to United, it appears that now, finally, bids from Manchester being tabled to Juventus.
This is supported by news from China that United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodard has chosen not to travel with the Reds on their pre-season tour to open negotiations. Additionally, Pogba hasn’t joined his Juventus teammates on their pre-season trip to Melbourne.
Italian paper La Gazzetta dello Sport made claims on the front page of their Wednesday edition that Pogba was intent to leave and that he’d already agreed to personal terms with United. All that stands in the way of his Premier League return is agreeing upon an appropriate transfer fee, estimated to be above £100 million.
The Guardian claims that Woodard offered Juventus a £100 million transfer free, but Juventus rejected, seeking a fee closer to £110 million.
