Manchester United is getting one step closer to finalizing the £100 million deal for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, as the Frenchman will undergo a medical.
Pogba, 23, left United back in 2012 on a free transfer. After four successful seasons at Juventus, winning four straight Serie A titles, along with the domestic cup titles and one Champions League final appearance, it looks like he’s heading back to Old Trafford.
United posted an update on their official website on Sunday, stating that the French international is set to undergo a medical at the AON training complex.
“Paul Pogba has been granted permission to have a medical in order to finalize his transfer from Juventus to Manchester United,” the statement read.
Reports say that Pogba will sign a five-year contract with the Red Devils, which would see him earn £275,000 per week.
The midfielder featured for the French national team at Euro 2016, where they ended up losing to Portugal in the final. Pogba has made 178 appearances for Juventus in all competitions, scoring 34 goals. He made seven appearances for United before leaving the club, featuring in three league games. He’s been capped 38 times by France.
Pogba has spent the offseason on vacation in the United States, and has been very tightlipped regarding his future. If the deal goes through, he could be available for United’s opening game of the Premier League season against Bournemouth next Sunday.
