Man Utd may confirm Pogba deal this week

Manchester United are confident Paul Pogba will sign his new contract.

The Manchester Evening News says United expect to make Paul Pogba their first major summer signing.

Sir Alex Ferguson believes he has finally fought off competition from Juventus to secure the highly-rated French starlet on a long-term deal.

Pogba is out of contract at the end of the season - sparking a scramble among Europe's biggest clubs for his signature.

Italian giants Juventus looked set to lure him to Serie A until Ferguson stepped in.

The United manager has convinced Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola that the 19-year-old will become a key figure for the Premier League champions.

A contract has been agreed in principal and United hope to announce a four-year deal as early as this week.
