The French midfielder has, according to the BBC, been given permission by Juventus to have a medical ahead of a return to Manchester United this summer.

The fee could be worth in excess of a £100 million transfer fee, which would be a world record fee for a footballer.

It has certainly got United fans excited, and some ex-players.

Phil Neville, who also worked as a coach at Old Trafford, tweeted this message earlier today as the deal final moves into view:

Pogba was of course at Manchester United as a youngster, before heading to Juventus in 2012 after failing to get a chance in the first-team under Sir Alex Ferguson.

He has since gone on to earn a reputation as one of the best players in world football with his potent performances for club and country.

Now it seems as though he is heading back to his former club in a real signal of intent from the Red Devils.
