Tuesday was a bit of a crazy day for the Paul Pogba to Manchester United stories, with all of Italy convinced Mino Raiola was set to meet with Juventus to make the Premier League club’s first offer for the 23-year-old Frenchman.
The Dutch super agent seemed affected by all this, to the extent where, contacted by Goal Italia, he slammed what was being reported in the press, calling it ‘bullsh*t’.
Il Messaggero on Wednesday, however, seem to think the deal is ‘in the pipeline’, and that mediations between agent and clubs have already happened.
They report that the two clubs are ‘one step away’ from agreeing a €125m deal for the young midfielder after the Serie A champions acknowledged that personal terms between Pogba and United have already been sorted.
The former Manchester United youngster is reportedly set to make €13m/year (£210k/week) with bonuses on top for the next five years.
They also state the (possibly final) ‘sprint’ took place on Tuesday night, with Mino Raiola managing to negotiate himself a 20% commission.
Such a deal would, of course, be the biggest ever undertaken in the history of football.
With the agent already sending two of his other clients to United, the 2016 transfer window will forever be remembered as ‘the summer of Raiola’ were the Pogba transfer to go through.
