Manchester United has agreed to a world-record deal to sign French midfielder Paul Pogba. Sources quoted by state that the club had agreed a record 110 million euros ($121M), to secure the French man on a 5 year contract. 

Goal also reports that a meeting held between officials from the Premier League club met and their Juventus counterparts earlier today discussed the deal to bring Pogba back to Old Trafford.The French international will be paid €13 million per season at the Premiere League side- almost three times what he was getting at Juventus.
