Manchester United have agreed personal terms with Paul Pogba, with the midfielder set to pocket a whopping £220,000-per-wek AFTER TAX if he joins them, according to reports from the Daily Mail.
The France international has emerged as the Red Devils’ major target over the course of the last week or so as Jose Mourinho looks to add a top class central player to his three signings – Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan – since his arrival at Old Trafford.
Reports have claimed that the club are willing to go as high as £100m for the Juventus player’s signature, and they may be forced to do so amid suggestions an initial £85m bid has been rejected by the Italian champions.
Although Juve’s stance appears to be threatening the transfer, the Daily Mail believe that personal terms have been settled with the 23-year-old, with the contract he’s expected to sign worth £220,000-per-week after tax.
Pogba, who helped his national side to the final of EURO 2016, is currently away on an extended break ahead of the 2016/17 campaign and a decision is expected soon, with his agent, Mino Raiola, thought to be eager to have the situation resolved by the start of August.
Man United allowed the rangy midfielder to join Juventus for a minimal compensation fee back in 2012, so the Turin giants will make a staggering profit should a £100m fee be paid.
