Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has all but confirmed Paul Pogba’s transfer during a press conference earlier today.
The Portuguese manager claimed that Manchester United will sign a total of four players this summer and the final addition will be a top class midfielder.
He said: “We made decisions, decide to bring four players not 10, that are Manchester United level. Four that we think can really improve the squad and not just be one more. This is the profile of our market.”
“A young defender that needs time to be a top one but who has top potential.”
“A creative player that we know the quality, a super striker, and we are going to get a very good midfielder. We try for balance. I am happy with my squad. I am happy with the effort of the club. The others it is their problem.”
The Old Trafford giants have been negotiating a deal for Pogba over the last few weeks and it is believed that all parties have now reached an agreement. Earlier today there were reports that Pogba is set to arrive in Manchester for his official photo-shoot before his presentation.
Reports claim that Manchester United will shell out a world record fee of 100 million pounds for the Juventus midfielder. The former United academy graduate will sign a long term deal at Old Trafford, which will see him become one of the highest earners at the club.
The move is expected to be made official later this week. The player could attend Manchester United’s community shield game against Leicester City as a spectator.
The Juventus star was a target for Real Madrid as well, but Los Blancos have been priced out of a move.
