The 24-year-old, who left Man United on a free transfer in 2012 after struggling to make the breakthrough under Sir Alex Ferguson, returned to Old Trafford for just shy of €107m last August.

On Tuesday, a new book Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football revealed that football agent Mino Raiola made €49m for his part in Pogba’s return to the Premier League.

It is understood that an alleged conflict of interest might have taken place in the deal, and according to AFP, FIFA will open an investigation into the France international’s world-record move.
