Could the end of the summer's biggest transfer saga be in sight?
Paul Pogba could soon make his return to Manchester.
Easily the summer's biggest transfer story, the Frenchman has been linked with a move back to his former club on a daily basis.
Reports yesterday suggested that the Red Devils had failed with their initial bid for the Juventus star.
If further emerged that Pogba himself had requested that the Serie A club allow him to rejoin Manchester United.
Now, it seems that United could soon land the midfielder said to be coveted by Jose Mourinho.
According to French publication L'Equipe, the Premier League outfit have had a world-record bid of €120million (£100m) accepted for the player:
