Paul Pogba's potential move to Manchester United may have moved a step closer on Monday after agent Mino Raiola flew to Miami to hold a personal meeting with his star client, according to France Football.
The reputable publication claims Raiola travelled to Pogba's Miami base where he has been enjoying a summer break following France's unsuccessful Euro 2016 campaign. Anyone who follows the Juventus star on Instagram will know that.
But while the 23-year-old enjoys some well-deserved downtime in the United States, back in Europe some serious business is going down on his behalf.

Manchester United are believed to be in the process of negotiating a £100m deal to bring him back to Old Trafford. Juventus are obviously happy to sell for that world-record fee and have seemingly already invested much of it in Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.
However, there seems to still be some doubt as to where Pogba will actually end up. While he has previously admitted his love for the city of Manchester and will be paid immense amounts of money to return, there are growing rumours that he may prefer a move to Real Madrid.

Real Madrid preference
Unsurprisingly, Zinedine Zidane is one of Pogba's footballing idols and, similarly, Pogba appears to be the Real Madrid manager's favourite player. It is a match made in heaven but club president Florentino Perez is, for once, not keen on breaking the world transfer record.
However, Pogba is still keen to be wearing a white shirt next season rather than a red one with one recent report from El Confidencial claiming he shared a 'desperate' phone call with Zidane to discuss their options.
Perhaps that is why Raiola felt the need to go and see his client in person. The Italian super agent seems determined to push him towards Manchester United after becoming best mates with Old Trafford chief Ed Woodward.
The pair have combined to seal deals for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this summer with Pogba believed to be the third and final aim. Raiola also stands to make a reported 30 percent of any transfer fee received for the Frenchman, meaning any transfer is likely to make him a rich man.
