Manchester United ready to break the bank for Paul Pogba

According to today's edition of L'Équipe, French worldwide Paul Pogba has informed certain teammates and friends of his desire to rejoin Manchester United this summer. A word of warning, though: L'Equipe thought Jose Mourinho had plans to play Pogba alongside Wayne Rooney in his midfield only last week and it is understood Pogba would prefer to join Real Madrid.

The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder has featured in every game of Les Bleus' march to the Euro 2016 final, where they will lock horns with Portugal at Stade de France on Sunday night.

The Premier League giants are also preparing a massive wage offer, which would translate to a staggering £11.1 million per season for a five-year contract.

New manager Mourinho has already moved quickly to bolster his squad at Old Trafford, bringing in defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Former Manchester United captain Rio Ferdinand has admitted he would love to see Paul Pogba make a return to Old Trafford.

Manchester United are expected to contact Juventus, via Raiola, after the European Championship and hope to reach an agreement for the Frenchman soon.

He added: "If United can get Pogba then that sends out the signal that we are really going for it this year".

Initial contact has been made and United are hopeful of concluding a deal to shatter the £85million paid by Real for Gareth Bale three years ago. I don't think he showed us any respect at all, to be honest.

'But definitely United are a huge club, it's also tough for him to decide what is best'.

Meanwhile, former Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero has said Pogba will face a hard decision on whether to move to United.
