Man United set to move for record-breaking addition

Manchester United are ‘sure’ to make a summer move for £75m rated Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, who spent some of his early career at Old Trafford, according to Italian football expert Tancredi Palmeri.

The France international left the Red Devils as a youngster in search of first-team football after finding his route into Sir Alex Ferguson’s XI blocked.

He has since gone on to thrive with Juve, who swooped to sign him from United, winning back-to-back Serie A titles while cementing his spot as one of Europe’s very best central midfielders.

As a result, Louis van Gaal has been linked with a stunning move to bring Pogba back to the Theatre of Dreams, and has been boosted by claims from the Old Lady that offers of around £75m – which would blow the current British record fee of £59.7m paid for Angel di Maria out of the water – will be accepted.

And in a Q&A session on Twitter, Palmeri suggested that United are ready to make an offer for the 21-year-old:

“I see them surely bidding for Pogba” – in response to a question on the club’s transfer targets.

He also confirmed that Pobga is certain to move this summer and that Manchester City have had a bid rejected:

“Yes. So far highest bid City (rejected)” – in response to whether or not Pogba will leave Juventus.
