While personal terms may be agreed in principle, United have not yet agreed a fee with his club Juventus.

Pogba's agent is Mino Raiola, who has helped United secure deals for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

United signed Pogba as a teenager from Le Havre but were unable to hold onto him due to the fact they could not offer him regular football, and they now look likely to have to shell out huge amounts in order to correct that mistake.
