Jose Mourinho seems to be on a roll as he has already signed three quality players ahead of the start of the new Premier League season. Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrik Mkhitaryan are already on board.

Now as Mourinho had mentioned in his first press conference as Manchester United manager that they will sign the fourth player before Aug. 31, 2016, United are gearing to shatter the world record fee for Juventus star Paul Pogba.

According to a report of Irish Independent, Manchester United have agreed wages deal with the French footballer, who is going to feature in the France playing XI against Germany in the semifinal of Euro 2016 on Wednesday.  

The Red Devils are willing to offer him triple the amount of money that Pogba is earning at Juventus currently. United seemed to have agreed to a record-breaking fee of £103 million, which is £18 million more than the world-record transfer amount of Welsh forward Gareth Bale (£85 million). Real Madrid had paid that huge amount for Bale in 2013. 

United are likely to offer the 23-year-old talented midfielder a salary of £11.1 million per year. 

If United manage to sign Pogba, this undoubtedly will become one of the transfers of the upcoming season. 

If the deal goes through, it will be a homecoming for Pogba as he had left Manchester United to join Juventus on a free transfer. At this moment, it all depends on Juventus management as it is indeed difficult to reject such a lucrative offer. 

Recently, former Manchester United footballer Paddy Crerand hinted at Pogba's signing as well. He said the club knows who it is and he has been here at the Old Trafford before.
