Manchester United have had a £100m bid for Paul Pogba rejected according to latest report in England.
The Guardian explains that Manchester United made a bid of £100m million which included £14m in performance-related bonus.
But Juventus want £100m up front and £8m on top if the player hits various performance targets with Manchester United.
So the difference is essentially only about £8m as the midfielder would be expected to trigger all of the bonuses for Juventus over the next four years.
And there is further good news as the report states that the player is open to a move to Manchester United – the club he left for almost nothing four years ago under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson.
And the other point of positivity for Manchester United fans is that Mino Raiola, the player’s agent, is said by the report to be keen to bring the player to The Premier League this summer.
Raiola has already overseen two major deals for his clients this summer as Manchester United have snapped up Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan from PSG and Borussia Dortmund.
We shall of course keep you updated but this mega transfer looks as if it’s more likely than not to happen at this stage as Jose Mourinho heralds his arrival at the club with an unbelievable summer in the transfer market.
