Paul Pogba has finally touched down in Manchester as he gets set for his medical at United.
Taking the lid of one of the world’s worst kept secret are Staff at Manchester airport who Monday morning tweeted: “An important passenger has just touched down at the airport. Can anyone guess who it might be?
Also, Juventus confirmed on Sunday that they had given the midfielder permission to undergo his medical.
And a statement on the United website – under the hashtag ‘Pogback’ – read: “Paul Pogba has been granted permission to have a medical in order to finalise his transfer from Juventus to Manchester United.”
As reported on Sky Sports, Pogba is to be taken to United’s training ground, with his medical due to start at about 1pm.
Already, Jose Mourinho is waxing lyrical about Pogba as he said after Sunday’s Community Shield victory over Leicester that the French star is making the right choice
“United is the perfect club to bring him to the level he wants to be.
“The Premier League is the perfect habitat for that. If you want to be the best player in the world, if you go to Barcelona or Real Madrid you are in trouble because I don’t think the other two big guys (Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo) will let you. The Portuguese gaffer stated.
It is expected that Pogba will command a transfer fee in the region of £89m from Juventus.
