Pogba betrayed us, says former teammates
Jose Mourinho is delighted that Manchester United are on the brink of signing France midfielder Paul Pogba from Serie A champions Juventus.
Mourinho was speaking after United had released a statement on Sunday saying Juve had given the player permission to have a medical with the club ahead of a potential world record transfer.
“Finally, it’s amazing that such a good player is with us,” Mourinho told a news conference after United’s 2-1 Community Shield victory over English champions Leicester City.
“Finally we have him. He comes to a winning side, a team who have (won) their last two matches, in the FA Cup and today.
“He has to work hard to come to the team.”
British media have reported that United will pay a world record fee of 105 million euros ($A153.17 million) for the 23-year-old who had joined the Italian giants on a free transfer from the Old Trafford club in 2012.
“Paul Pogba has been granted permission to have a medical in order to finalise his transfer from Juventus to Manchester United,” United said on their website.
