PAUL POGBA will have a medical with Juventus early next month after the details of his return to Turin were thrashed out.
And the former Manchester United midfielder, 29, looks set to sign a three-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months.
A key meeting between officials from the Italian club and one of Pogba’s representatives, Rafaela Pimenta, took place in Milan on Thursday.
Everything is now in place for his return to Serie A giants Juve as a free agent — six years after he left to rejoin United in what was then a world-record £89million deal.
Reports in Italy suggest he will earn a basic salary of around £150,000 a week, although that will be boosted by a sizeable signing-on fee.
However, that figure will cause some raised eyebrows among the Old Trafford hierarchy.
In his Amazon Prime documentary The Pogmentary, he described a new £300,000-a-week contract offer from Red Devils chiefs as “nothing”.
United announced earlier this month that he would be leaving this summer when his contract expired.
Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid were also keen on luring the French World Cup winner.
Pogba has been busy since quitting Old Trafford at the end of last season.
