For the last two weeks, Paul Pogba transfer talks have dominated the football world, as Manchester United look to secure a world record deal.
When big money transfers are on the line, no new piece of information falls through the cracks. The Daily Mail reports that United have agreed on a £100,000 million dollar deal for Pogba. It would see the French midfielder earn £210,000 per week after tax.
This morning’s Manchester United shirt number announcement revealed Paul Pogba’s favoured #6 vacant, sparking even more speculation.

The Red Devils initial offer for Pogba stood at £86 million, before being turned down by Italian giants Juventus. Their counter offer of £100 million however, may be too great to turn down.
Since Jose Mourinho’s arrival, United have lured Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
“I don’t confirm and I don’t deny, I cannot tell you,” said Mourinho.
Former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says one of his biggest regrets was letting Pogba go. At 19 years old, Pogba was sold for just £800,000 in 2012. A return to Old Trafford will see him break the world record for the most expensive transfer.
AN HONEST MISTAKE
The truth on Paul Pogba may have been staring us in the face this whole time. An Instagram post made by Pogba’s barber revealed that he was:
‘changing up Pogba’s hair colour for his new team’.
What makes this post even more suspicious, is that the post was soon deleted off Instagram completely.
