Football News

You have to feel sorry for those Manchester United fans desperate for the announcement that Paul Pogba has finally signed for the Red Devils.

But the good news is that this summer’s longest-running transfer saga appears to be reaching its conclusion.

Reports are circulating that United have now agreed a staggering €120 million fee for the France international, who left Old Trafford for Juventus four years ago, and a deal could now be announced within the next 48 hours.

Adidas must know the deal’s close, particularly after their latest #FirstNeverFollows video released on Twitter this afternoon.

The video, which runs alongside the caption: “Don’t believe everything you read in the papers. It’s all just blah, blah, blah,” features Pogba entering a five-a-side court before looking up at an advertising board displaying the Manchester United logo and Old Trafford.

The video then cuts to Old Trafford itself and, standing outside, we see Stormzy who says: “Shut up”.

It’s all a bit weird and over the top, but it’s all good for Adidas.

People - us including - are now talking about them as much as Pogba and the longer this continues, the more exposure they’ll inevitably receive.

The transfer should be confirmed very soon

Fortunately, it shouldn’t be too much longer now before the transfer is confirmed.

Real Madrid won’t pay the money United are prepared to stump up and Pogba, providing he passes a routine medical, will re-join his former employers for a world-record fee.

The 23-year-old will become the Red Devils’ fourth summer signing following the arrivals of Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Mourinho tells nine players they can leave

In order to free up some cash, Mourinho has told nine players that they’re free to leave Old Trafford either permanently or on loan.

Bastian Schweinsteiger is the highest-profile casualty of the cull, according to the Daily Mail.

The Germany international, who currently earns a cool £160,000-a-week, has been told he has no future at Old Trafford following a disappointing debut campaign with the Premier League club.
