Just when we were led to believe that Paul Pogba's record breaking transfer from Juventus to Manchester United was finally set to go through, his agent, Mino Raiola, takes to Twitter to announce that the deal is still pending and that he's not particularly fond of the media.

On Thursday night reports emerged that all the relevant parties were satisfied and, at long last, Pogba would return to Old Trafford for a record breaking fee of €110m.

Manchester United had reportedly agreed to pay Raiola's huge €20m commission, albeit at a slight discount, while Juventus would foot the tax on the fee.

Pogba's wages had been settled on, at roughly €260k a week ,and he would undergo a medical in America within the next 48 hours.

However, his representative is now claiming that no contracts have been signed and that the clubs are still in discussions.
