Report: Manchester United agree Pogba fee

Reports in the French media suggest that Manchester United and Juventus have finally agreed on a fee for highly-rated midfielder Paul Pogba.

The summer's long-standing transfer saga looks to be nearing an end, with L'Equipe reporting on Wednesday night that the two clubs had settled on a £92-million deal.

United had originally offered £87-million plus add-ons, while Juve were holding out for £102-million, but middle-ground has now been found.

The report adds that Pogba will be offered a five-year deal and that United will buy over his commercial rights.

Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, will get a staggering 20 per cent of the transfer fee, which amounts to £18.4 million. Raiola has already facilitated transfers to Old Trafford for two of his other clients, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Juventus will reportedly use the money from Pogba's sale to fund a deal for Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.
