Manchester United have finally managed to convince Juventus to let go of Paul Pogba after a long drawn out transfer saga. Fans were mad with joy at the return of their prodigal son for what is believed to be a world record transfer fee.
Juventus have reportedly accepted Paul Pogba’s request to leave for Manchester United. The 23-year old defensive midfielder left Old Trafford in 2012 as a free agent after falling out with then manager Sir Alex Ferguson. He is now set to return for a staggering sum of €120 million, shattering the world transfer fee record paid by Real Madrid for Gareth Bale in 2014 (€100 million).
The signing looks set to be confirmed within a few days, and Manchester United fans went absolutely berserk on Twitter.
POGBA IS HAPPENING!!!!!!!

Whatever Juve want for Pogba, we should add like £20million extra on to it just to piss everyone off.

I know Pogba isn’t worth a 100 mil but Arsenal fans are making it seem as if were signing a brick layer … Pogba is a very good player
