The France international, a former United academy graduate, has been identified by Jose Mourinho as a key component of his new-look midfield.

It has the potential to be a world-record transfer with the Serie A side wanting in the region of £100million for the 23-year-old.

Such is the clamour for the deal to be done by the media, Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola decided to involve himself in the public debate and he dropped a big hint the deal is still some way off being completed.

He Tweeted: “Journalist = parrots. No deal done between clubs. It’s a game between Italy press and UK press who announce it first and who is worse.”

Reports of a medical already having taken place are believed to be wide of the mark as there has yet to be a deal in principle agreed between the two clubs.

Negotiations are likely to continue over the weekend.
