Manchester United are keen to confirm the signature of Paul Pogba from Juventus before Sunday’s FA Community Shield fixture.

After a few rounds of tough negotiations, Manchester United reached an agreement with Juventus for the signature of the 23-year-old midfielder last week.

With personal terms agreed with the player, Manchester United were hoping to finalise the deal by now, but they are yet to confirm the Frenchman’s return to Old Trafford.

And according to Turin-based daily La Stampa, the Premier League giants are pushing towards making an announcement before Jose Mourinho’s side take on Leicester City this Sunday at Wembley.

The transfer is said to be all but done, but the army of lawyers employed by both clubs have been going through the fine print of the agreement over the last few days.  


And super agent Mino Raiola again had a meeting with the Juventus legal team yesterday to finalise the paperwork before sending it to the club officials for their signature, which would seal the deal.

Pogba is scheduled to return to training with Juventus on Sunday, but by that time he is expected to become a Manchester United player.

The Red Devils will be paying a world record fee of €110m to Juventus for Pogba, and the Frenchman will become one of the best paid players in the world once he signs the contract with Manchester United.
