So, the time is finally upon us. One of this summer's longest transfer saga's has concluded with Paul Pogba completing his world record move to Manchester United.
Mino Raiola, the French midfielder's agent, has been rather vocal throughout the entire ordeal with his tweets simply another part of what has been one of the most frustrating transfers in the history of football.
The £89m fee was most likely the stumbling block which caused the endless delays, but now Manchester United have confirmed that they have resigned Pogba on a five-year deal.

Just prior to the official announcement by the club, Raiola himself published a tweet essentially letting the many users of the social media platform know that the deal had been done.
We all knew it was coming and if anything, it was a relief to finally see the digital evidence from one of the main parties involved:
So Jose Mourinho finally gets his man, Raiola gets a big fat pay day and Pogba gets another chance at the club who so cruelly rejected him before.
The former Juventus man had this to say on Manchester United's official website:
“I am delighted to rejoin United. It has always been a club with a special place in my heart and I am really looking forward to working with José Mourinho. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Juventus and have some fantastic memories of a great club with players that I count as friends. But I feel the time is right to go back to Old Trafford.
"I always enjoyed playing in front of the fans and can’t wait to make my contribution to the team. This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to in the game.”
Finally, it is over people.
