Manchester United are on the brink of tying up a deal for Paul Pogba, claim the Express.

Charles Perrin explains: "According to the Sun, a deal could be thrashed out this week with negotiations drawing to a close between Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, Juventus and United.

"The report suggests a medical could be pencilled in for Pogba for Tuesday.

"It is thought the 23-year-old will put pen to paper on a five-year contract which will see him earn more than £200,000 a week.

"United it is expected, will spend £105m to pave a return for the Frenchman, who left the club on a free four years ago."
