After having dinner with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United’s training base, Sir Alex Ferguson has approved the club’s move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba in a deal worth €110 million.
The Portuguese boss has a lot of admiration for the 74-year-old and wants to work closely with the Scot, making his endorsement of the Frenchman significant.
When Pogba left Old Trafford in 2012, it was due to a falling out between Ferguson and Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola. As a result, the midfielder left the club for a tiny fraction of what it is costing to bring him back.
It is believed that a fee of €110m has been agreed between United and Juventus, and Pogba has agreed a salary that is close to €350,000 a week, according to The Daily Mail.
The 23-year-old is currently on holiday in Los Angeles and it is thought that he has had his medical there.
With the deal expected to be announced in the coming days, Pogba has reportedly told friends that he will be returning to Manchester next week.
Along with endorsing the world-record signing of Pogba, Ferguson also mingled with United players for the first time since he retired as manager three years ago.
