No Pogba deal done

Has a deal been done to take Paul Pogba to Manchester United? No, according to the Juventus star's agent. 

Man Utd ready to make world-record offer for Pogba

Man Utd had reportedly made an offer of £86 million (102 million euros) for the player this week, which was turned down by Juventus. 

Jose Mourinho's side are expected to return with an improved bid that approaches Juventus's £100 million asking price after United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward met Pogba's agent Mino Raiola to thrash out personal terms this week. And indeed today UK tabloid the Mirror came out and said the deal had been done for 100 million pounds (119 million euros) plus add ons.

Pogba agent Raiola turns to Twitter

But Raiola took to Twitter on Thursday to insist the deal was not concluded yet.

'There's no deal done regarding Paul Pogba, lots of bla, bla, bla,' Raiola tweeted on his verified account.
