Federation Internationale de Football Association to probe Pogba

Federation Internationale de Football Association to probe Pogba

Federation Internationale de Football Association has opened an investigation into the transfer, with the head of the global governing body, Gianni Infantino, demanding greater transparency around transfer deals.

Neither the player nor Raiola has commented on the latest developments, while a spokesman for United said on Tuesday: "We don't comment on contracts".

French midfielder Pogba was transferred for more than £89.3 million ($111 million, 105.2 million euros) in August 2016 from Italian club Juventus.

Those claims will be explained in greater detail in a forthcoming book called "Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football", written by two journalists from German newspaper Der Spiegel.

He has been a regular feature of the United midfield this season, scoring seven goals in all competitions for Jose Mourinho's side.

Manchester United are within their rights to pay agents multi-million pound sums as part of transfers, FA chairman Greg Clarke has said - but the sport needs a debate about the issue. It is also claimed that the club paid £2.2m owed by Pogba to Raiola's Monaco-based agency Uuniqq SARL. "Pogba, for example, would make almost £1m more from United if he was named Fifa Player of the Year".




Some reports have said that United engaged Raiola at the same time, paying another very large fee, to help secure the signing of Pogba.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?

"I told him we wouldn't pay him that - his player can pay it him".

One of the more ridiculous figures involved is that Pogba's agent Mino Raiola will make a whopping $53 million (£41 million) from the move.

He is expected to play a central role in United's attempts to finish in the Premier League top four and win the Europa League - both of which would provide a route in next season's Champions League.
