Paul Pogba transfer: FIFA confirms investigation into Man Utd signing

Goal.com logo Goal.com 09-05-2017

FIFA has confirmed that it's investigating Paul Pogba's record-breaking transfer to Manchester United last summer.

The news was broken by Football Leaks, AFP and other European news outlets claiming that Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, was at the centre of the €105 million transfer probe.

Documents purportedly relating to the France international's move showed that his agent Raiola stood to benefit to the tune of £41m off the deal.

A FIFA spokesperson told Omnisport: "We can confirm that FIFA TMS [Transfer Matching System] has been requesting information on this matter.

"We have no further comment at this stage."

The deal that took Pogba back to United from Turin saw him become the world's most expensive player, breaking the previous record of £86m set by Gareth Bale's move from Tottenham to Real Madrid.

Raiola also represents a host of other high-profile players, including Pogba's United team-mates Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, as well as the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Mario Balotelli.

Man Utd and Juventus are yet to comment on the allegations, which surfaced at the start of the Champions League semi-final between Juve and Monaco on Tuesday.
