The transfer saga involving Paul Pogba finally appears to be coming to an end.

The deal involving the Frenchman has been conducted  slightly differently to many transfers, with the midfielder agreeing personal terms before the two clubs have even agreed a deal.

With the 23-year-old settling with a basic salary of around £11 million-per-year, it’s just left for United to meet Juventus’ valuation. And, according to the Guardian, it seems that the Red Devils may have done just that.

They are reporting that United have submitted an increased bid of Pogba worth €110 million (£92m) including €10m in add-ons.

Earlier this week, Sky Italy reported that Jose Mourinho’s side had an £85m bid for Pogba rejected by the Italian champions, but they are hopeful that this improved offer will see them take a huge step to re-signing their former player.

While Juventus may be set to lose their key man, they could well be making a massive signing themselves. According to reports, Gonzalo Higuain is on the verge of joining the Old Lady in a £79 million move from Serie A rivals Napoli. Many believe that the money spent on Higuain is in anticipation of the massive fee they are set to receive from United.

Meanwhile, Spanish website AS claim the deal for Pogba could be completed as early as Wednesday or Thursday. If United’s second bid is accepted, don’t be surprised to see Pogba’s move soon being officially confirmed.

Of course, Pogba would become the world’s most expensive player if a deal does eventually go through. Just think, £92 million for a player they allowed to leave four years ago. Crazy.
