Manchester United expect Paul Pogba deal to reach £106 million

France international Paul Pogba really could become the first player to be sold for £100 million this summer. 

The 23-year-old is widely recognised as one of the best midfielders in world football and has attracted interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe recently. 

With the duo of Manchester United and Real Madrid in the running to land Pogba, it's going to prove extremely difficult for Juventus to keep him at the club ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

Pogba, of course, departed Old Trafford on a free transfer back in 2012, but it now appears that he could head back to his former club.

United, who will not be involved in next season's Champions League competition, clearly have the money and look set to make their move imminently. 

Huge Pogba fee 

Indeed, Sky Sports only reported today that the club had begun negotiations with Juventus over a world record deal worth £100m. 

But there could yet be a twist. There's every chance that the Red Devils will actually pay more than the aforementioned price for Pogba. 

That's right, as per the Daily Mail, the United hierarchy expect the deal to reach a mammoth £106m - shattering all previous records. 

Of course, there's an extremely long way to go in this saga - Real maintain an interest - but it now appears that United are the front-runners to wrap up the signing. 

Brilliant deals 

And what a summer it has already been for Jose Mourinho and co. at the Theatre of Dreams. 

Ivory Coast international Eric Bailly quickly became the Special One's first signing, while veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic also joined the ranks on a free transfer. 

The club announced on Wednesday that they had secured the signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund.

It now appears that Pogba is the missing piece of the jigsaw. He really would prove to be a remarkable coup for the club in their pursuit of returning to the summit of the Premier League. 

With Mourinho at the helm - and Pogba potentially on his way - United should once again be a force to be reckoned with next season. 

They may well pay over the odds to sign him, but he really could be a game changer. It's fair to say that the Old Trafford faithful will be watching on with an interest as Pogba attempts to lead France to a place in the Euro 2016 final.
