Manchester United have now sealed a world-record £100million deal to sign Paul Pogba. They have agreed to pay Juventus the massive fee for their France superstar and will hand Pogba a five-year contract worth £210,000-a-week, net. The Old Trafford giants‘ executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward agreed the deal with Juve directors Giuseppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici, as well as the player’s agent Mino Raiola.
The clinching deal is understood to have been secured at £100m with around £8m in performance-related bonuses. It eclipses the £86m Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale in 2013.
The Frenchman will become Mourinho’s fourth signing following the summer arrivals of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mhkitaryan. Asked about United earlier this month during an interview with ESPN in Spanish, Pogba replied:
“It was my first family.”
