Sky Sports reporter reveals potential duration of Paul Pogba's Man Utd medical

Manchester United are in dreamland at the moment.

Following three years of toil, it's been nothing short of a sensational summer for the Red Devils having appointed Jose Mourinho as manager and signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly.

And things only improved on Sunday when they not only beat Leicester City to win the Community Shield, but also confirmed that Paul Pogba had been pencilled in for a medical ahead of his highly-anticipated £100 million-plus move.

It really seems like everything is falling back into place.

However, somewhat unsurprisingly, Pogba's return to Old Trafford has hit another snag.

According to revered Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol, the Frenchman's medical could take "2-3 days" to complete (see his tweet below).

Three days to complete a medical - what kind of tests do United have in store for Pogba?!

Inevitably, football fans soon responded and took it upon themselves to ridicule Solhekol's bizarre claim.


Fans will ultimately be rewarded for their 'patience' when Pogba's move is finally confirmed.

With the France international at their disposal, United will be outright favourites to win the Premier League and add to their current haul of 20 league titles.

Doubt remains over whether Pogba is worth his reported £89 million move - excluding agent fees - but, for Mourinho, he'll be worth every penny and United should be proud that they're able to attract such high-profile players.

Following his side's 2-1 victory at Wembley, he said: "I don't think Real Madrid were upset when they broke the record with Gareth Bale. I don't think it is a reason to be sad.

"It is a reason to be proud with the dimension of the club that can do that and can attract players of this dimension.

"If you ask me if I think it is a lot of money, I think football is crazy, the market has become crazy.

"What you think this season is crazy you realise three years later is not crazy anymore. I think there are players who cost £10 million who are super expensive because they are players £400,000 or £500,000 or £1 million so what is expensive and not expensive in football? I don't know anymore.

"I just know he is a big player that is going, for sure, to be important for a big club like Manchester United."
