Manchester United to complete talks with Paul Pogba's agent this weekend

So the end of the longest protracted transfer dealings of the summer is finally in sight.

That's right, Paul Pogba is edging closer and closer to completing his move back to Manchester United and The Sun are reporting that negotiations revolving around his personal terms are set to be completed this weekend.

The French international is currently on holiday in America after losing the final of Euro 2016 to Portugal in extra time but his agent, Mino Raiola has spent most of the week in talks with United officials.

It would appear that a deal has been struck and Pogba is set to be given a five-year contract, earning a staggering £202,000 per week.

It doesn't quite match the dizzy heights of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's £260k weekly wages but once the £105 million deal is confirmed, the 23-year-old can boast becoming the most expensive footballer in history.

If, as expected, talks with Raiola are completed and both parties are satisfied, Pogba could fly into Manchester and have his medical as early as Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the current Juventus star posted a video on Instagram earlier today of himself and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku landing in Miami after a lengthy flight on a private jet from Los Angeles.

In the video, the midfielder looks very relaxed despite his future being up in the air for the last two months - perhaps news of the lucrative deal currently on the table had filtered through?

Man United's pre-season kicks off tomorrow with a friendly against Wigan Athletic but Jose Mourinho's squad are set to jet off to China to step up their preparations for the upcoming campaign on Tuesday.
