United settle Pogba dispute

Manchester United have settled their dispute with Le Havre over the controversial transfer of Paul Pogba to Old Trafford.

The 17-year-old prospect found himself at the centre of a disagreement between the two clubs following his move to England last summer.

Le Havre claimed United had broken FIFA rules by offering Pogba financial inducements to break his contract with them.

The Red Devils always denied any wrongdoing and the matter has now been resolved.

"Le Havre AC and Manchester United FC are pleased to announce that following discussions between the two clubs, an agreement has been reached in relation to the registration of Paul Pogba with Manchester United in July 2009," read a United statement.

"The terms of the agreement will remain confidential.

"Paul is an exciting young talent who Manchester United hope can prove to be a great success at Old Trafford.

"Le Havre would like to wish the player well in his future career."
