Manchester United to complete Paul Pogba's signing in the next 48 hours

Manchester, July 28: Manchester United are all set to seal a world record transfer deal for Paul Pogba within 48 hours, according to the Guardian.

The English Premier League giants have reportedly agreed to pay a revised sum of €110m with €10m in add-ons to Juventus.

The Serie A champions too are reportedly happy with the offer and the deal and will sell the French international. Juventus recently bought Gonzalo Higuan for a record €90m transfer fee from Napoli.

Pogba's agent Mino Raiola will earn a hefty €20m fee from this deal to bring back the midfielder to Old Trafford after a span of three seasons. He had left the club in 2013 due to lack of first team opportunities.

Yesterday it was reported that Real Madrid have renewed their interest in the player after their manager Zinedine Zidane gave a hint.

Zidane had said: "I don't know if he will come. Until 31 August anything can happen. Everyone is interested in Pogba. He is a great footballer and when you are Madrid you always want the best.

"But now he is not a Real Madrid player, he is a Juventus player. I can't say anything more."

However, despite Zidane's comments, it is believed that Manchester United are still the front-runners in the race for Pogba and will confirm the signing very soon.

With rat race for Pogba coming to an end, Manchester United have grabbed the limelight in this transfer window as they have roped in some of the big names. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly are the other three signings completed by the English giants.
