Transfer Balls: Pogba to Manchester United as talks progress

by | 6th, July 2016

Is Paul Pogba on his way to Manchester United? Jason Burt explores the story with his Telegraph readers:

Big problem for Man Utd with Pogba remains persuading him to leave Juve and come back to them. Plus all the fees.

It’s that kind of insight that gets you the top reporting jobs.

The Guardian says United will pay the £84m for Pogba but Real Madrid is the player’s preferred destination.

Jose Mourinho wants United to agree to Pogba’s wage demands and cough up €300,000 (£250,000) a week. But – get this – Juventus, where Pogba plays, say £84m is just the starting point. They want more.

The paper adds that United’s club’s chief executive, Ed Woodward, is “holding face-to-face talks” with the player’s representatives. No negotiations via fax machines this summer at Jose’s more determined United.

Marca says United are favourites in the betting markets to land Pogba. So put your shirt on Pogba to Barcelona, then.

The Metro says Paul Pogba is heading to United because he “recently followed Memphis Depay, Jesse Lingard and Adnan Januzaj on Instagram”. How many of those three will be at United next season is uncertain, but you’d not bet on Januzaj and Depay making the cut.

Pogba also follows Justin Bieber. Make of that what you will…
