United starlet close to Old Trafford exit

Published Add your comment

Manchester United starlet Paul Pogba has ended months of speculation by agreeing a four year deal that will see him swap Manchester for Juventus this summer, according to the Daily Mail.


Pogba has been marked out as one of the brightest young talents in United’s youth system since joining the club from Le Havre in 2009, but has repeatedly been linked with a move away from the north-west this season.


The former Le Havre youngster’s deal at Old Trafford expires at the end of next month, with Juventus luring him to Italy without having to pay any form of transfer fee, although compensation will be paid.


The Mail reports that Juventus will announce the lucrative deal when Pogba’s contract with United expires at the end of June. The France U-19 midfielder will earn around £20,000-per-week as part of his deal with the Turin club.


United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has tried desperately to keep Pogba at the club after urging the 19-year-old to sign a new deal, while accusing his agent of turning his head to more lucrative deals abroad.


Pogba has featured in Manchester United’s first team more regularly of late, seemingly in a bid to convince him that his long-term future lies in Manchester, however Ferguson’s plan has failed to convince him to stay.


Ferguson is likely to be particularly aggrieved with the involvement of Italian super-agent Mino Raiola, who has been acting as an advisor to Pogba and also has ties with Juventus having garnered a reputation for securing lucrative contracts in his homeland.
