“The Frenchman is closing in on a return to Old Trafford, and following his holiday in Miami, Pogba is now understood be in LA,” L’Equipe journalist Nabil Djellit claims.
He tweeted yesterday evening: “Paul #Pogba is ideal to pass a medical examination for #ManUtd, in the direction of #LosAngeles…? #Mercato.”
Before confirming he had landed, saying: “#Pogba has just landed in #LosAngeles… it is 13:36 local time… #Mercato #Manutd.”
While Manchester United fans are keeping their fingers crossed on the expected world record transfer fee, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp seem to have confirmed the almost-done deal.
The German tactician has slammed Man U for breaking the current world transfer record held by Gareth Bale whose transfer from Tottenham to Real Madrid in 2013 reportedly cost £85m.
Klopp believes United’s plan on the young mercurial midfielder is a huge risk, according to Express.
He said: “If you bring one player in for £100m and he gets injured, then it all goes through the chimney.
“The day that this is football, I’m not in a job any more, because the game is about playing together.”
