Manchester United have scheduled talks with Juventus this week to table a formal bid for Paul Pogba.
AS says United are set to open proceedings to bring Pogba – who had two unsuccessful years in Manchester from 2011 – back to Old Trafford.
United have reached an agreement with Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola, which will see the 23-year-old earn £11.5m (€13.5m) a year.
United are willing to meet Juventus’ staggering £102m (€120m) asking price as well as Pogba’s lofty wage demands.
Raiola will also pocket £21m (€25m) in commission for the world-record move.
