Manchester United are expected to agree the signing of Paul Pogba for a world record fee in the next 48 hours, according to reports in Italy.

United are believed to have agreed personal terms with the Juventus star, who left the club as a 19-year-old for a small compensation fee when his contract expired in 2012.

They put the likely transfer fee at just over €110 million (£92m) plus bonuses, while Raiola is expected to earn in the region of €25m for his role in facilitating the transfer.
