Manchester United are understood to be readying an official offer in the region of £87m for Juventus and France midfielder Paul Pogba, according to Sky Sport.
The report says officials from the Old Trafford are due to meet Juventus directors and the 23-year-old’s representative Mino Raiola despite the Italian club standing firm on renewing Pogba’s deal with them.
Raiola is currently based in Empoli, while Pogba is away on holiday and will return to Turin on August 6.
Sky Italy report that Pogba has already agreed personal terms of a salary of £10.92m (13m Euros) a year, and his path to Old Trafford was seemingly cleared last week when Real Madrid withdrew from the race for his signature.
He left Old Trafford on a free transfer in 2012 but could be set to return this summer in a potentially world-record transfer, with negotiations over a deal understood to have begun earlier this month.
New United boss Jose Mourinho recently spoke of four priority targets in the transfer window and playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s capture marked their third acquisition following the arrivals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and centre-back Eric Bailly.
