After weeks of speculation, it would seem Paul Pogba's future has been decided.

The France international, currently on international duty at Euro 2016, has been the subject of considerable interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Reports once suggested Los Blancos was Pogba's preferred destination but that might not be the case.

According to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, per AS, United have agreed personal terms with the 23-year-old ahead of a proposed €120 million move from Juventus.

He wrote: "Manchester United have accepted the exorbitant figures proposed by both Juventus and the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, and have reached an agreement with the French midfielder that’ll complicate things for the player’s other suitors (principally Chelsea as well Real Madrid).

"Under the agreement, Pogba will earn €13.5 million a year and United are also willing to meet Juve’s €120m asking price - a fee that would make him the most expensive player in history.

"Add €25m worth of commission for Raiola and you can see why Los Blancos consider the quantities needed to make Pogba a galactico as 'insane'."

Exciting news for United, especially so given they have already signed Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The above revelation comes after Pogba insisted a potential move away from Juventus wasn't even "out of the starting blocks".

That doesn't appear to be the case as the Frenchman's highly-anticipated return to Old Trafford gathers momentum.
