Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has reportedly told Manchester United to wrap up a deal for the midfielder by the end of July – or risk missing out on the player.
Spanish publication Marca claim that the influential agent wants any possible transfer involving the Juventus star sorted before August.
Reports have surfaced in recent weeks that the Red Devils’ interest in Pogba is concrete and that they are readying a world record £100million bid for the 23-year-old.
The France midfielder failed to light up Euro 2016 and on Thursday former Arsenal player Emmanuel Petit said signing Pogba would be a “waste of money”.
If these latest reports from Marca are accurate, then that gives the Premier League side just over two weeks to finalise the biggest transfer of all time.
However, former agent Vincent Rodriguez has claimed on social media that the deal could even be done by the end of this week.
The Paul Pogba deal to #mufc could be done by Friday evening, the clubs are now finally talking. €145m is the complete cost of the move.
