Confirmation that Paul Pogba is a Manchester United player appears to be imminent.
The Daily Mail reported on Friday that the Frenchman had completed a medical ahead of his £100 million move from Juventus. Although Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, denied that was true, it still seems to be a matter of when, not if, the deal is completed.
Supporters are already preparing for Pogba’s arrival, with one fan getting him to sign a ‘Pogba 6’ United jersey.

And he’s continuing to delight fans by signing yet more merchandise.
This time, the 23-year-old signed a couple of United footballs for one ecstatic fan.
Unlike the supporter who was too nervous to ask Pogba about his move to United when he spotted him in Los Angles, this one - named Max Schilling - claims to have even discussed the reported £100m fee.
He posted an image of himself with the midfielder, adding the caption: “@paulpogba pleasure teaching you how to shoot a proper jump shot. Thanks for the first signed @manchesterunited soccer balls and jerseys.
“He had some interesting things to say about his transfer fee 130 mill$$.”
Pogba must share a close relationship with Schilling if he’s willing to discuss his transfer fee. He will become the most expensive player in history, surpassing the £86m Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale in 2013, signing a deal that will see him earn £290,000-a-week.
