Pogba set for United medical

Juventus have granted Paul Pogba permission to have a medical with Manchester United ahead of a reported 110 million euro ($164m) transfer.

Juve officials confirmed to Press Association Sport that the France international has been given the green light to undergo fitness checks as his proposed world-record switch back to Old Trafford edges closer.

The Italian champions were in London yesterday, when they defeated West Ham 3-2 in a friendly to mark the opening of the London Stadium.

Pogba, 23, is not with his teammates as he is still on leave following his exertions at Euro 2016.

But the midfielder is due back in Italy for training today, while Juve officials could not confirm exactly when the medical will take place.
