Hold onto your hats, folks: Manchester United could be on the brink of pulling off one of the transfer coups of the summer. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, who is about as reliable a transfer ‘expert’ as it’s possible to be, the club have agreed personal terms with Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

The marauding midfielder will reportedly be paid a very healthy €13m a season for his services.
