Paul Pogba’s ever-running transfer saga to Manchester United could soon come to an end after a detailed break down of their offer was revealed by the trusted Gianluca Di Marzio.
According to Di Marzio, United have offered close to €104m and a whopping €13m-per-year salary for the French International, which could yet not be enough.

Following up on the news, Daily Mail have claimed that Mino Raiola has indeed presented the offer to Juventus and is in England today to finalize the last few details of Pogba’s impending move to Old Trafford.
Sky Sports Italy have also backed the story and are adamant that an official bid will be presented to Juventus today but they have also expressed their reservations about it being accepted.
Sky Sports claims that Juventus are looking to mint €125million (excluding the add ons) and will only consider the bid if it meets their asking price.
However, The Red Devils are hopeful of sealing the transfer for somewhere around €115m (including add ons) which somehow tells me that this transfer is far from being completed.
Although Di Marzio claims that it is a matter of days, I see this get dragged in to next week before we see Pogba join Manchester United, which we will as a negotiation of this magnitude and length often yields positive results for the chasing club.
