After a lot of speculation, the Frenchman will arrive at the Old Trafford. While United or Juventus have not disclosed the fees, it is understood that it will definitely shatter the world record fee of Gareth Bale.
Pogba was roped in by Juventus as a free agent in 2012 and now United are paying a staggering amount to bring the star back in their ranks.
Jose Mourinho had mentioned earlier that he will be signing another player by Aug. 31 and a number of media houses, newspapers, broadcasters have been speculating since Euro 2016 that Pogba will be returning back to his club ahead of the start of the new Premier League season.

The news was announced by the club just ahead of the start of the FA Community Shield final between the Red Devils and Leicester City on Sunday. The club also released an official statement regarding the same.
Thus, United fans have double reasons to celebrate now -- first, the joy of winning the Community Shield for the 21st time and second the arrival of Paul Pogba from Juventus.
