No deadline for Manchester United to sign Paul Pogba


The agent of Juventus star Paul Pogba, chased by Manchester United, has insisted that there is no rush for the Red Devils to complete his signature.

United are reportedly preparing a deal worth an eye-watering £100m, which would be a new world record for a player transfer.

All parties are keen for a deal to be concluded in a swift fashion, however Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has not set a particular date.

United do have a backup option if any deal for Pogba falls through, in the shape of another Frenchman, Blaise Matuidi.

Pogba, 23, is remaining tight-lipped about his future. He was interviewed at the ESPY awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

His response was: “I don’t know, let’s see. For the moment I’m at Juve and I’m happy. I don’t know where I want to go.”

United manager Jose Mourinho has already completed the signings of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and widely hinted at a fourth signing before the season starts next month.

Mourinho stated: “We made a nucleus of four priorities, four positions, priorities.

“To give a certain balance to the squad, to give a certain push in terms of quality, and the qualities that I need, that I want, as we know especially the ones with more vision.”
