Paul Pogba has arrived in secret in Manchester, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The French midfielder’s future has been the biggest story of the summer in world football and it appears we’re almost at a conclusion. He’s been heavily linked with a return to the club he was a youth player for between 2009 and 2012, but so far no deal has been done.
That’s despite the English Premier League season being just over a week away and United set to play in the Community Shield against Leicester City tomorrow.
Paul Pogba Has Arrived In Secret
While Massimiliano Allegri said he expects Pogba to return to Juventus training tomorrow after his post-Euro 2016 holiday trip to America, that now looks unlikely with Italian’s biggest newspaper reporting that he’s touched down in Manchester.
According to La Gazzetta, he’s done that in “semi-underground” conditions as the English giants look to keep confirmation of their £100 million deal secret until they can announce it.
The report also says that Pogba will complete a medical tomorrow before being paraded by the Old Trafford club in the coming days.
Gazzetta says Pogba arrived in semi-underground conditions and was taken away before photo could be taken, but the news is confirmed.
