Manchester United have threatened to break twitter this evening as the Red Devils in the run up to their FA Community Shield match against Premier League champions Leicester City have announced that their capture of Juventus midfielder is all but complete.

United released a statement on their website moments ago, declaring, "Paul Pogba has been granted permission to have a medical in order to finalise his transfer from Juventus to Manchester United."


The Red Devils labelled the release as: "POGBA TO HAVE MEDICAL AT AON TRAINING COMPLEX" and issued the hashtag: #pogback.

Earlier in the day, Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport reported that the French player, who just finished his vacation following participation in Euro 2016, arrived on Saturday in the city of Manchester to undergo his medical examinations.

Pogba's deal is believed to be worth a record 110 million euros or $122 million. Pogba arrived in Juventus in 2012 from United for just 1 million euro, but now, he is about to be the most expensive football player in history.

Pogba will leave Juventus after having made 178 appearances for the Turin giants, scoring 34 goals. He has won 4 straight Serie A titles during his time with the club.
