Paul Pogba’s £112m return to Manchester United has reportedly been agreed and is likely to be confirmed by the club this weekend with the Frenchman set to earn £290,000-a-week.

The 23-year-old will move to Old Trafford as part of a world-record deal - once agent, salary and administrative fees are included - making him the most expensive football player in history.

The Independent understands that United will pay £92m for the Juventus midfielder while the Serie A giants are expected to foot the tax bill in a move which will lower the expectation on Pogba.

Because of this, it has been reported that Juventus will announce the transfer fee at £84.3m, just shy of the £86m Real Madrid paid to Tottenham Hotspur for Gareth Bale in 2013.

Furthermore, United and Juventus have also agreed upon a £20m agent fee for Mino Raiola, the Dutch super-agent, with the Italian champions paying for the additional £4m owed.

This follows the news that Pogba had flown to Los Angeles from Miami for his medical on Thursday evening. With this evaluation now believed to have been completed, theDaily Mail suggests that the 23-year-old has agreed to sign a five-year contract with United worth £290,000-a-week.

The agreed £92m fee easily smashes the previous transfer record paid by a British club when United brought Angel Di Maria to Old Trafford from the Real Madrid for £59.7m two years' ago.

He follows defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

However, Raiola, the man behind the deals which took Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan to Old Trafford this summer, has taken to Twitter to brand journalists as “parrots” before accusing them of engaging in an on-going battle between the English and Italian media after rejecting claims of a done deal.
