Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba could become the world's first £100 million player.

Pogba, 23, departed Old Trafford in favour of a move to Juventus back in 2012, but there's now every chance that he could return to Manchester in the immediate future. 

It has been documented that new United boss Jose Mourinho is hoping to make Pogba the centre-piece of his new-look team ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

It appears, then, that United believe Mourinho's arrival gives them a better chance of landing the Juventus man, but it remains to be seen as to whether the club's hierarchy manages to get the deal over the line. 

With Spanish giants Real Madrid seemingly hovering, Pogba could yet end up at the Bernabeu before the start of the new season. 

The Telegraph claim a deal for the dynamic midfielder could cost anything between a staggering £90m and £110m in transfer and agent payments.

For now, though, Pogba will be hoping to help France progress in the European Championships. The hosts are set to take on the Republic of Ireland in Lyon on Sunday afternoon and will be determined to secure a place in the quarter-finals of the prestigious tournament.
