With Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the bag, United are looking to tie up another huge name.

Today's Daily Star reports that the club are in 'advanced talks' to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus.

The fee reported, an eye watering £80m, would match what Real Madrid paid United for Cristiano Ronaldo and only Gareth Bale's £86m move to Spain would have cost more.

The French star has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for months now and the Star believe that the 23-year old wants a return to the club that let him leave for free in 2012 so he can work with Jose Mourinho.

The news comes just a day after Ibrahimovic announced he was on his way to United on social media.

United also seemed to confirm that they had another new face in the bag, as they showed Henrikh Mkhitaryan's name on shirts for sale in the club shop.

If United can pull off these three deals, it will have to be seen as a great summer's business so far for Mourinho's first season.
