Man Utd accelerate for Juve's Pogba

Manchester United are trying to sign Juventus' Paul Pogba quickly, before Real Madrid decide to make a move themselves.

The French star still represents the dream of many top European clubs, even though the most recent rumours suggested the Merengues were out of the race.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United are now pressing as hard as possible, and are looking to sign Pogba shortly.

Their offer includes a payment of €100m plus €23m in bonuses, whilst Pogba would earn €15m per season. That's almost three times his current salary of €6m yearly.

The idea is to close a deal before Real Madrid can make up their minds to go on a full offensive, bringing their considerable resources and magnetism in play.

Juventus, however, are apparently still firm that they do not want to sell the player.
