Man United will make an opening offer of £100m for Paul Pogba in the next 24 hours, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

If accepted, the transfer would smash the world record £90m sum that Real Madrid paid Spurs for Gareth Bale nearly three years ago.

Pogba joined Juventus from United in July 2012 after rejecting the offer of a first senior contract from Sir Alex Ferguson in favour of Serie A, where he has developed into one of the world’s finest midfielders.

Reports suggest that £13m of United’s £100m bid will be performance-related, while they are also willing to make the 23 year-old one of the richest players on the planet with a £250,000 a week contract.

Juventus are expected to reject United's world record big and hold out for at least £100m without any add-ons, while Pogba himself is thought to be keen on a move back to Old Trafford this summer.

United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, will meet with Juventus directors and Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, instead of joining the club’s pre-season tour of China as he tries to iron out a deal that suits both parties.
