Manchester United’s ground-breaking move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is being held up by a disagreement over the agent’s fees, according to The Sun.
That’s right, it’s another day of gossip from across the footballing globe but Pogba’s potential transfer yet again grabs the headlines.
Paul Jiggins writes: “Paul Pogba’s world record £100million move is being held up by a row over his agent’s £25m fee.
“That is how much Mino Raiola wants for brokering the transfer between Manchester United and Juventus.
“United and Raiola are happy for both clubs to pay £12.5m but Juve refuse to pay Raiola a penny from the money they will get from United for Pog, 23.”
“And the Serie A giants are adamant that any agent’s fee must be paid by either United or the French midfielder himself.”
